Wow! What a District Dinner! More than 170 people attended the 3 Rivers District Dinner at Brook Hall in Blaine. A special part of the evening was watching Mrs. Harold Goodman present her husbandís the Eagle Medal and recognition paperwork earned in 1930 to Randy Miller of the North Star Scouting Museum. Congratulations go to all of the great leaders in our district who make Scouting a great program for area youth. Eight of the 3 Rivers District Eagle Class of 2001 were congratulated on their achievements at the dinner. Mel Aanerud, Mark Thiel, Norm Motter, and Martin Manion were recognized for their work in the District with the District Award of Merit. Mark Spohn and Jim Hirschman received the 2001 Cubmaster and Scoutmaster of the Year Awards respectively. Sharon Sandberg was honored for her efforts as District Advancement chairperson with the award of a James E. West Fellowship. Sharon then presented the Richard Silverstein award to Troop 631 . District Commissioners Curt Brazier and Ron Hackett recognized Unit Commissioners Sheri Gohl, Deb Bode, Curt Brazier and Keith Rassmussen with The Salt Of The Earth Award and Unit Commissioner Randy Kennedy as The Rookie Of The Year.

Special thanks to all who contributed pictures for the slide show, and to Robin Passer and Laura Beth Giese for their efforts in decorating the hall. Venture Crew 406 did a great job with the opening and closing flag ceremonies.
