The 2016 Recognition Reception & Gala was held on Thursday, March 30, 2017 at First Baptist Church in Richmond.  The event was a festive evening of fun, fellowship, inspiration, and recognition!  The Council’s highest volunteer recognition, the Silver Beaver Award, was presented to eight deserving Scouters.  Introduced in 1931, the Silver Beaver Award is a distinguished service award of the BSA.  These recipients are registered Scouters who have made an impact on the lives of youth through their hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication and years of service.
