Ottawa: Adult Volunteer Dinner and Annual Meeting
Come celebrate with your fellow Scouters at our Annual District Volunteer Dinner. Every year the district hosts this event so that we recognize volunteers for their dedication to the Scouting Movement and to the youth of our community. Keep reading a list of the awards that will be presented and how to nominate volunteers for them. This dinner is for ALL adult volunteers in the Ottawa District. You can register as an individual, a couple/pair, or a table. Save 22% over the individual price by getting a group of 8 together and buying a whole table.
This years event will be "Late Night Talk Show" themed. So come prepared to have fun and fellowship.
Doors open at 6:15 PM with a reception. Program starts at 7:00 PM.
Awards and Nominations for the Dinner
At our District Dinner, we have the opportunity to present several awards to leaders within our district. Please view the list below and nominate a fellow volunteer to be recognized.
DISTRICT AWARD OF MERIT
The District Award of Merit is an award given to individuals who render service of an outstanding nature at the district level. The award has an application process and is reviewed and selected by a committee of district volunteers. The nomination of an individual s confidential. Please do not advise the nominee of your action on their behalf.
The Silver Acorn Award can be given to one volunteer in each unit of the Ottawa District, and should not go to someone who has already received it in that unit. So an individual could earn multiple Silver Acorn Awards from different units they may serve in.
This award is intended to go to a unit level volunteer that demonstrates great dedication to Scouting and who lives by the ideals of the Scout Oath and Law. This person DOES NOT need to be a registered volunteer.
All Volunteer Leaders who have earned the following in 2019 will also be recognized at the Dinner:
Commissioner Service Awards
Scouter Keys Awards
Scouter Training Awards
Recognize and celebrates your unit’s dedicated volunteer leaders! All award nominations are due by or before February 15th.
