At its Annual Volunteer Awards Dinner held Saturday, Feb. 2, the Iroquois Trail Council, Boy Scouts of America, honored three volunteers with the council’s highest award, the Silver Beaver Award. Honorees are Edward Fancher (Albion), Robin Louvain (Geneseo), and W. David Servizi (Newfane).
The Silver Beaver award recognizes distinguished service to youth. Each recipient is a long-tenured volunteer who has also made significant contributions by way of service to their local communities.
Local Cub Scout and Boy Scout leaders were recognized for program excellence in the areas of camping, membership recruitment and retention, and helping Scouts to meet their funding needs.
Several youth members were also recognized. Cub Scout Tyler Mutka (Corfu) topped the list with Popcorn Sales of more than $3,200. The sale raises money for Scout programs, and also qualifies Tyler for a national college scholarship program. This is Tyler’s second year as top seller among Scouts in a five-county area. Other Scouts who will be inducted into the scholarship program are Noah Kutter (Corfu) and Brent Oliver (Lyndonville).
