2023 Hometown Heroes Gala

Proceeds to benefit the programs of the BSA

Join us as we recognize the everyday heroes who quietly make a difference in our community in the way they work, volunteer, and make life better for others, featuring keynote speaker Dr. Andrew Armacost.


SSG Andrew Nelson was an Eagle Scout from Troop 644 in Moorhead. He was a remarkable young man who exemplified the Scout Oath and the Scout Law and dedicated his life to serving others. Unfortunately, Andrew died August 29, 2007 in Iraq while serving his fourth Tour of Duty with the 82nd Airborne Division. SSG Andrew Nelson lived his life unselfishly in service to others. We wish to honor his memory and recognize others in our community who exhibit the same kind of servant leadership as they work daily to make our community better.

Please take a moment and nominate a member of your organization that you think would be a good candidate to be considered for this recognition. They do not have to be a member of your leadership team nor do they need to be affiliated with Scouting.

1) Be a great employee
2) A member or veteran of the armed forces
3) Someone who volunteers in the community

If selected, we will recognize them at the Heroes and Leaders Gala on Thursday, November 3, 2022 at 7:00 PM at the Avalon Events Center in Fargo.
