Troop 110 2012 District Honorees
  
       As you know 4 adults from Troop 110 where recognized for their service to our troop and scouting at the District Dinner last Saturday, May 5, 2012. The 4 adults where Bruce Chan (District Award of Merit), Valerie Smith (District Appreciation Award), Jin Wu (District Appreciation Award), and Andy Ng (District Appreciation Award).
  
The Appreciation Award is the first of three awards given to an adult volunteer by the District followed by the District Plaque and the last and highest a District can award a volunteer is the District Award of Merit. This award is given to a volunteer who has served his unit and district for over 5 years and has gone beyond the call many times over. For more than 12 years as a adult leader and mentor, Bruce has served as Den Leader, Assistant Scoutmaster, Scoutmaster, NYLT Scoutmaster and Director, and ACORN Trainer and Director. Valerie Smith has served the troop as Advancement coordinator for over 4 years, Jin Wu as Assistant Scoutmaster for over 2 years, and Andy Ng as the Recharter Representative and ASM for 2 years and also served as Treasurer at a previous troop.
  
Many thanks to these 4 adults and looking forward to their continued service to the troop and scouting. The awards will be presented at the next troop court of honor in late June.
  
Please join me in congratulating them!!

Unit Hornaday Award 2010 Update
  
Well, I just received notice from Indy N., the scout who lead the Hayward Storm Drain Project last fall, that he was awarded his Hornaday Silver Medal this week. He will receive his medal at the National Jamboree this Summer. As mentioned, this is a very prestigous award and very difficult to achieve as it requires 8 conservation projects which are equivalent to 8 Eagle projects. Indy wanted to extend his heart felt gratitude to Troop 110 as 25% of the effort came from the troop. Indy informs me the Unit Hornaday Award for Troop 110 is in it's final stages and should receive notice soon. We will receive the award at the district dinner in May. There are two other troops receiving the award as well. This is a big deal for the troop as it helped so many. A big thank you to all who participated-
  
Yours In Scouting,

Troop 110 Rocks The House Again!!!
  
Saturday evening, May 7th, 2004, as you all know, was the annual Mission Peak District Awards Dinner, and once again Troop 110 was well represented among the recipients.
  
Unfortunately, no one from the District Awards selection committee notified anyone from the Troop leadership that there were to be so many people recognized. For what it is worth I appologize on their behalf -- they maintain a policy of keeping secret from the recipients the awards that are given, so it must have been a puzzlement for them, trying to figure out who to call.
  
In any event, give a cheer for the following hard working Scouters -- they will be officially recognized by District representatives at the Summer Court of Honor on Wednesday, June 8.
  
Mission Peak Certificates of Appreciation were awarded to:

  • From Troop 110: Bruce Chan, Pam Mutch, Ted Mutch, Ron Natividad
  • From Crew 110: Julia Lloyd
  • From Pack 268: Albert Gallegos
  • District Plaques were awarded to: John Pedersen, Tom Sims

In addition, Troop 110 was recognized as a Distinguished Unit for 2005, received Kudos all around for the "Pirates of Los Mochos" Webelos Woods event (yes, they are STILL raving about that!) and a ribbon from Friends of Scouting for exceeding our Family Goal again this year.
  
Thanks to everyone whose hard work and dedication made all this happen.
