Richard D. King to receive 'Scouter of the Year Award'
Submitted By Joe Barton
On Friday, May 3rd, the local Boy Scout district will host its 9th annual "Friends of Scouting Community Leadership Breakfast" aimed at increasing awareness and support for Scouting in the Tri-Cities area. Master of Ceremonies this year will be retired Newark Mayor Dave Smith.
Scouting is a non-profit organization that focuses on preparing our young boys and girls to be responsible members of our community. Money raised at this event will help provide many services and materials to our Scouts and volunteer leaders, including:
* Scouting Summer Camps
* Youth leadership training
* Program planning materials
* Professional staff support
* Printed resources for units
* Recognitions for volunteers
* Volunteer training materials
* Volunteer adult training
Each year, the Scouts recognize local community leaders who have supported or who have made a significant contribution to Scouting. One award goes to an individual or organization in the community who has been a big supporter of Scouting. Richard King has been a longtime supporter of Scouting and has served our community in a variety of capacities, including serving on the Fremont Planning Commission, Fremont Symphony Board, Rotary Club of Niles-Fremont and the Executive Board of the San Francisco Bay Area Council, BSA.
Our local Mission Peak district serves the communities of Fremont, Newark and Union City. Currently we have over 3,000 youth and adult participants and have had membership growth every year for the past five years. Every dollar raised at the breakfast will go directly back to serving youth as City Beach has generously underwritten the event in order to help promote youth outdoor activities. Tickets for the breakfast are still available for $50. To reserve your seat today, please contact Joe Barton, Field Director at 510-577-9227 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
