Northern Lights District Dinner

2022 Northern Lights District Dinner

The District Dinner is an annual event to recognize the hard work of volunteers serving our youth at the Unit & District Levels. The District Award of Merit, District Service Award, Certificates, and “Beacon Award” are a sample of the awards presented at this event. 2023 District Officers will also be elected and installed. This is a non-uniformed business casual wear event. We hope that you join us as we honor each other and our fellow volunteers receiving recognition for their good deeds, dedication, and of course only “one hour a week” of service to Scouting!
