Four Boy Scouts volunteers to receive prestigious awards

The Maui County Council, Boy Scouts of America will have its annual dinner at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the Latter-day Saints Maui Lani Stake Center in Kahului. At this upcoming event, James Brent and Rick Miller will be honored with the Silver Beaver Award. John Napaepae and Elbert Kuniyoshi will be honored with the District Award of Merit.

The Silver Beaver was introduced in 1931 as the highest Scouting award given at the local council level. It recognizes volunteers for consistent, dedicated service to the area’s youths, both in and out of Scouting, over their tenure as a volunteer.

The District Award of Merit Award is presented to any registered Scouter who renders service of an outstanding nature.

“We are honored to have the opportunity to recognize these wonderful volunteers, and grateful for their years of devoted service,” said Duc Button, MCC Scout executive. “It is only because of the leaders with this type of dedication that we are able to serve about 900 youth in Maui County.”

The cost to attend is $150 for a catered table for eight and $20 per person for a catered meal.
