CATOCTIN MOUNTAIN DISTRICT'S
HONOR ROLL

It is well known in Scouting that "It's all about/for the youth" and no one will dispute that. With that said, all too often the people that enable it to happen are sometimes forgotten in the shuffle and sometimes don't get the full recognition they deserve. Yes, we hand them a certificate or award but in a week, that gesture is forgotten by most. This Web page is dedicated to those Scouters in a hope that their achievements are never forgotten.

 


 

THE SILVER BEAVER AWARD

 


From the beginnings of Scouting in Frederick County until 2003, 59 Francis Scott Key District Scouters were honored with the coveted Silver Beaver award, the highest award that a Scout Council can present for service on the Council level. The first recipient was Dr. Ignatius Bjorlee and those that followed soon after included Harold Chichester and Rev. William Carson Royal. Naturally the list of Silver Beaver recipients reads like a Who''s Who of Scouters in Frederick County. Since 2003 and the creation of Catoctin Mountain District, this strong tradition has continued.
