One of our Scouts was honored to receive the President's Volunteer Service Award from the Lebanon Optimist Club. He completed over 100 hours of community service over the past year. We try to encourage all of our Scouts to serve the community.
Each Court of Honor is a special event, celebrating the accomplishments of our Scouts. We typically hold two ceremonies, one in the spring and one in the fall. Each Scout is recognized for merit badges, rank advancement, new leadership positions, and other special awards received.
