South Mountain District Dinner - Awards


The South Mountain District's Annual Volunteer Appreciation and Recognition Dinner is held to celebrate all adult volunteers in the South Mountain District for the fantastic work you do. In addition, it is the time we recognize those who went above and beyond in 2018 with special awards. The SMD asks your help. Please review the awards below, and complete the nomination forms below.

  • Star Award – This is the "Scouter of the Year" from each Unit. Each Pack, Troop and Crew will be able to say thank you to someone special for outstanding service in their Unit.
The Silver Beaver Award is the highest council-presented award available for Scouting volunteers and is presented at the Council Volunteer REcognition Dinner in January. A partial list of South Mountain District (and its predecessor, the Bethlehem Area Council) recipients shows how active our district volunteers are.

The Award of Merit and the Fellowship Award nomination forms are due on January 31, 2019. Also, with the exception of the Star Award, each of these awards can only be bestowed once for any individual, so the lists of previous recipients are listed above. The Star Award nominations are due at Recharter on January 5, 2019. The Training Awards can be submitted at any time. Nomination forms can either be brought to Recharter or you can email or mail to Arby Beisel at or P.O. Box 20624, Lehigh Valley PA 18002-0624.
