Council Recognition Luncheon

Saturday, March 27, 2021

The Council Recognition Luncheon will be held in-person at the Capital Credit Union Scout Center in Bismarck and the Wanzek Center for Scouting in Fargo. The luncheon will start at Noon for those in attendance.

The program will be broadcast using Go to Webinar and is scheduled to run from 12:25 – 1:00 pm (central). Those that can’t attend in person can watch the broadcast on Go to Webinar.

Since the Recognition Luncheon was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, we will be presenting Silver Beaver Awards to those volunteers selected in 2020 in addition to those selected in 2021. The 2020 recipients have already been notified with this information.

Exploring – A program of the BSA

When Scouting programs are mentioned most, if not all, think of Cub Scouts or Scouts BSA. There is another program offered through the BSA for youth ages 14 to 21 with a career-based approach - Exploring!. Explorer Posts are chartered by businesses or organizations within our communities that offer specific educational elements. Mandan Police Post #2853 is currently the only Explorer Post in Frontier Trails, but other opportunities are being explored for future.

If you have an idea for an Explorer Post, are interested in learning more about the Mandan Police Post, or would like to volunteer in an Exploring program contact Paul at the Bismarck Scout Office.
