Annual Dinner Facts

The Distinguished Citizen Award recognizes outstanding individuals in the community for their impact on the lives of others within Lancaster and Lebanon Counties. These individuals live up to the Scout Oath and Law in their everyday personal and professional life. The award committee has selected one individual to be honored each of the past 32 years. The recipient is recognized at the Annual Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner, which is held in the fall each year. As a part of the dinner program a Scout will share his Scouting experiences and what being involved in Scouting means to them. One of the other highlights of the evening is a guest speaker who will share a message with the audience; this message will vary depending on the speaker.
