Annual Recognition Dinner


2020 Annual Banquet Canceled
After an exhaustive review, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year's Council Banquet, previously scheduled for October 27th. While we are disappointed, the ever-changing situation caused by COVID-19 has certainly caused us to "be prepared" for anything. 

Heart of America Council is striving to ensure that a proper salute to our volunteers can still continue...virtually. Stay tuned for a personal video highlighting our Silver Beavers and other award recipients, coming this fall. 



The Silver Beaver is the highest award that a council may present to a registered volunteer for outstanding service to youth. Congratulations to the 2019 Silver Beaver Class.
