Chisholm, Tulving earn Top Scouter awards
Pacific Crest District of Boy Scouts of America’s annual awards dinner, honored adult Scout leaders in the area who have given exceptional leadership to the Scouting program.
Over 60 leaders and family members attended the banquet, held at Ramona United Methodist Church on Friday, May 7.
“Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are involved in outings, service projects and other group activities, but it takes dedicated parents and adults to help make the program successful,” said Russ Christensen, Pacific Crest District chairman. “We recognize our outstanding leaders each year at our banquet, and take time to thank all adult volunteers who support our youth in Scouting.”
