Gathering of Eagles & Silver Beavers 2018

Gathering of Eagles & Silver Beavers

You are invited

More than 100 Scouts in the Bay Area Council earn their Eagle rank each year. To honor their achievement, the Bay Area Council hosts the Gathering of Eagles.

This will be a very special evening for the 2018 Eagles, Eagle Alumni, parents, sponsors, and guests.  It is our hope that you will help make this a memorable event by sponsoring one or more Eagle Scouts, as well as joining us in celebrating this wonderful event.

We will also honor our Venture Award recipients and our Silver Beaver recipients. The Silver Beaver Award is presented for distinguished service to youth. It is the highest honor that the Bay Area Council can award to a volunteer. We hope you will join us in honoring ours volunteers as well.
