The New Eagle Scout Reception recognizes the previous year’s Eagle Scout class. The council continues its tradition of providing this reception free of charge for new Eagle Scouts and their guests. 



Scouts of all ages, Eagle Scout alumni, Scouters, and leaders are all encouraged to attend this special program to recognize the 2019 Eagle Scout class, the Adams Project of the Year Award, and NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award recipients. Eagle Scouts and their families will not want to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to be recognized by accomplished Eagle Scouts. The event is underwritten with generous sponsorships by many Eagle Scout alumni, charter members and patrons.  


Eagle Scouts (board of review date before 12/31/19) must RSVP to receive their medallion. Please feel free to invite as many guests as you like as long as they RSVP. The New Eagle Scout Reception is free to the Scouting community. All Scouts, troops and packs are welcome to attend.
