Sapona District Recognition Banquet

Fellow Scouters,

Due to public health concerns related to the Coronavirus, and input from the Key Three, we have decided to postpone our Sapona District Leadership banquet scheduled for this Sunday, May 15 at First Methodist fellowship hall. We have decided to find a suitable date in April or May to honor our leaders. We will decide the next steps at our April District Board meeting and Roundtable. Sorry we had to take this step but it is a proper precaution given current circumstances . Thanks as always for your leadership. All feedback is welcomed.

Sapona District Board

The date is Sunday evening March 15 beginning at 6:30 at the First Methodist Church Fellowship Hall in downtown Salisbury. This will be a potluck dinner with attendees furnishing enough food for yourself and two others. At this time there is no charge to attend the banquet but you will need to register in advance. We will have online registration available through the District and Council websites in the very near future. In the meantime please nominate your deserving leaders and notify your Eagle Scouts for 2019 that they will be honored as well.

Nominate Your Outstanding Sapona District Scout Leaders and Volunteers!

Each Year the Sapona District BSA is proud to honor our outstanding unit leaders and volunteers. We are currently seeking your nominations for the various awards and recognitions. Attached please find a nomination form for unit level awards plus a form for the District Award of Merit. Please take time now to identify and nominate your leaders for outstanding service during 2019. The deadline for submitting nominations is February 11, 2020 at the monthly roundtable gathering. In the interim, submit all; nominations to our District Executive Dieter Stoelting in person or by email. Forms are listed below.

RECOGNITION BANQUET: The 2019 award winners will be recognized at our Adult Leadership Recognition Banquet in March. The date will be Sunday March 15 at the First Methodist Church Fellowship Hall in downtown Salisbury. Note that this year’s event will be somewhat different than in the past. The date is a Sunday evening beginning at 6:30. Instead of a catered meal we are suggesting a potluck meal where all attendees bring enough food for themselves and two others. We are soliciting sponsors to cover other expenses related to the banquet including Eagle Scout Recognition. Under this new format there will be no charge to attend the banquet but we will need attendees to register (online registration will be available in the very near future.). If you are interested in being an event sponsor or know someone who is willing please let us know. Our goal is $500 total..

EAGLE SCOUTS: As in the past we will recognize our 33 outstanding Eagle Scouts for 2019 at the banquet. Scoutmasters please notify your 2019 Eagle Scouts of this opportunity and encourage them and their families to attend.

Please register as adult leader or 2019 Eagle Scout. No charge to attend but please bring food to share in potluck dinner . Registration open until March 13.

Please make plans now to participate and please nominate your outstanding leaders. If you have any questions or wish to be involved in the Recognition Banquet planning process please let Dieter or the District Committee know.


Yours in scouting,

Marny Hendrick
