Tawes To Be Honored as BSA Somerset Outstanding Citizen
The Del-Mar-Va Council, Boy Scouts of America, will hold its annual Somerset County Outstanding Citizen Dinner on Friday, May 20, 2011 at the Somerset County Civic Center in Princess Anne.  This year the Boy Scouts will honor Scott Tawes.  He has been and continues to be an active member of the Lower Shore community. 
The Somerset Outstanding Citizen Dinner is the annual opportunity for the community’s leadership to gather and celebrate the successes of the Boy Scouting program in our area.  The dinner is built around recognizing a person who uses the character traits taught in Scouting to make our community a better place. 
The event will draw over 200 people to recognize Scott for his service.  The Outstanding Citizen Dinner will hopefully raise over $20,000 to help support scouting programs and services.  Over 15,000 youth are served by the Del-Mar-Va Council, Boy Scouts of America annually. Special efforts are made to reach urban, rural, minority, handicapped, and underprivileged youths, who will benefit most from Scouting’s values-based programs.
On line registration is available at www.dmvc.org/ocad .
