The Lassen District Committee for the Boy Scouts of America, Nevada Area Council, sponsored a dinner June 12 to recognize adult Scout leaders in the Lassen District that have demonstrated superior leadership and commitment to their units and the district.

The Lassen District includes nine Boy Scout Troops and eight Cub Scout Packs in Lassen, Plumas and Sierra counties.

The dinner was held in the Mineral Building at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds and was catered by Moon’s Restaurant in Quincy.

After a delicious meal of lasagna, Caesar salad and garlic bread, several exceptional Scout leaders were recognized for their dedication to the ideals of Scouting and providing a quality program to the respective units in their community.

Chris Rose with Pack 151 in Quincy received his Den Leader Training Award with accompanying uniform square knot.

Tracy Harris, Pack 60 in Loyalton; Alicia Rose, Pack 151 in Quincy; and Becky Stokes with Pack 130 in Quincy all were awarded the Unit Award of Merit for their efforts to Scouting.

Dale Stokes, Cub Master for Pack 130 in Quincy was selected as the recipient of the District Award of Merit.

The District Award of Merit is actually a council award that is presented by districts in the same manner as the Silver Beaver Award or other council awards.

The recipient is chosen from those people that are nominated for rendering noteworthy or outstanding service at the district level.

District Executive Rebekah Havard has been the council professional for Lassen District for just over a year and noted, “I have been truly impressed with the knowledge and dedication of the volunteers in the Lassen District and I’m looking forward to more and better programs as we go along.”
