Eagle Recognition Dinner
The first Eagle Scout medal was awarded in 1912 to Arthur Rose Eldred, a 17-year-old member of Troop 1 of Rockville Centre, Long Island, New York. Eldred was notified that he was to be awarded the rank of Eagle Scout in a letter from Chief Scout Executive James E. West, dated August 21, 1912. The design of the Eagle Scout medal had not been finalized by the National Council, so the medal was not awarded until Labor Day, September 2, 1912. Since then, more than 1.7 million Scouts have earned the rank. In 1982, 13-year-old Alexander Holsinger, of Normal, Illinois, was recognized as the one-millionth Eagle Scout. Come celebrate the successes of the class of Orange County 2007 Eagle Scouts at the Eagle Recognition Dinner on April 23.

Subject: RE: Leader Meeting Notes Mar 7 '08

No, we did not discuss the campout. Can you please send the current list of attendees so that we can see how the Dens are represented? As everyone is already paying their own camping fees, I am leaning toward the Pack paying for the food. FYI - Mike Fatigate told me that, with notice, he can arrange for donations of things like cases of water and refrigerator space from Ralphs. Once we know how each Den is represented, then we can look at assigning tasks like breakfast setup, etc to a given Den.

RE: Leader Meeting Notes Mar 7 '08

Pack Leaders,

Were any details of the forthcoming camp out discussed during the meeting? I have had several cancellations for the campout, we are down to 61 attendees (much more manageable).

How will be handling the food? Are we charging XX amount per camper to cover the food costs? Should we have a planning meeting after the pack meeting on the 18th?

Ill will send out an email with the details as soon as they are finalized.
