2023 District Banquet Kick Off
Why a District Banquet?
The Northern Ridge Banquet is a recognition and fellowship event held annually to recognize the volunteers who serve our scouting youth. The highlight of the evening is the presentation of the District of Merit Award, the highest recognition presented on the district level. In addition, The Silver Beaver Award recipient from our district, which recognizes a registered Scouter of exceptional character who has provided distinguished service within a council.
Let’s not forget the District Godsend, a Scouter who has given their all and a little more in service to our District and all the Unit Godsends who have done the same for their units.

Who can Attend?
The annual district banquet is a celebration of the accomplishments in and for our district. From awards to district events like Camp-o-ree and Cub Scout Day Camp. This is an event for everyone, so when you ask who should attend, our simple answer. Everyone! Remember it takes a village and no one person can make our district great… As a side note, having two adults (leaders or not) attend the banquet is an easy check box for the District Honor Unit Award.
