Scouters Honored at District Dinner

Large Turnout for District Dinner

The Boundary Waters District held their Volunteer Recognition Banquet on Thursday, January 9 at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Virginia.  As anticipated, the evening was well attended with nearly 50 Scouters and Scouts.  Guest speaker, Troy Loeb, graciously expressed his gratitude for the presence of the Boy Scouts in the local community. As an Eagle Scout, Troy shared the importance of the rank of Eagle and how it has not only affected his life, but everyone around him. Troy is now a retired Lieutenant Colonel and Financial Advisor for Edward Jones in Hibbing.

Popcorn chairs were recognized with a certificate and a "corny" gift of canned corn!  Pat Baumann and Troop 129 provided entertainment with a “Scouting Pictionary” game and a skit.

Many Sparkplug awards were given out to those Scouters who provide that little "spark" that keeps the program going. A certificate was awarded to each recipient to recognize their tireless effort and endless enthusiasm.

Honored for their service to Scouting, David Toole, Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 4129 of Virginia and Dennis Marchetti, Cubmaster of Pack 4016, Hibbing, were both awarded with the Boundary Waters Award. Their passion and dedication to scouting is greatly appreciated by everyone.

Special awards were given to Heather Tomczak and John Stanaway for their work organizing and running Day Camp and WAC camp for the past few years.

Receiving the District Award of Merit was Allen Wiermaa of Troop 4129, Virginia.  Allen is an Assistant Scoutmaster and has chaired the Klondike Derby for two consecutive years.  Allen is never without his camera and has recorded many Scouting events and made CD's available online or for personal use.  All three recipients are Wood Badge trained!
