A fun time was had by all at this year’s North Star Adult Recognition dinner held at the American Legion post in Broad Ripple this past Saturday.
Eddie Stahl, our new Sr. District Executive, and Lee Murdoch, Crossroads BSA Director of Support Services, spoke to the group about their visions for 2019 as well as to recognize North Star adult volunteers for the phenomenal work they are doing for Scouts in our District.
Jerry Simon received the inaugural Jerry Simon North Star District Service Award of Distinction for his 30+ years of dedicated service to the District, much of that focused on mentoring Eagle Projects and leading Eagle Boards of Review.
Stephen Heath and Kevin Neese received District Awards of Merit for both of their continued tireless efforts with our District, and Peter Holtz received Scoutmaster of the Year for his leadership of Troop 56. Mark Pishon received a special recognition for his above and beyond continual service and leadership to North Star. Peter also wrapped up the meeting with a very fitting Scoutmaster Minute.
Mike Yates, the Pishons (Mark and Chris), Paul Kovach and Mark Maucere did a fantastic job of setting up this 100th birthday gala for North Star.
Congratulations to all!
