This year's Winter Soiree will have 2 parts!
You can choose to do one or both!

Re-Charter tip #4
Roster review, it is super important to make sure that everyone that is participating in your unit is on your charter. This protects everyone from any unforeseen issues. That is why running a complete roster review before you start your recharter process is so important.

Eagle Recognition Dinner
January 13th, 2022
Eagle Scouts, this year's keynote speaker is Thor Retzlaff. Thor earned his Eagle Scout rank in 2013. Thor will talk about achieving this accomplishment and the formative years, and bouts of adversity that inevitably shaped him into the man he is today. Since graduating from Lewis & Clark College in 2018, Thor has been on an entrepreneurial journey, founding a media production company and several companies dedicated to understanding the affects and uses of human waste on and with the environment. During the event you can expect to hear more about Thor's adventures to the Arctic and Antarctic regions, why storytelling is a powerful tool, and why it is important to seek out inconvenient experiences.
