Join us at the Celebration of Eagles – October 26th, 2018

This year the Utah National Parks Council, Boy Scouts of America will celebrate the virtues of Scouting at the Celebration of Eagles on October 26th at the Adobe Lehi Building. This black-tie event will begin with mingling among prominent community members and fellow Scouters and feature hors-d’oeuvres and music. Doors open for check-in starting at 6 with the reception beginning at 7. The one-hour awards ceremony will begin at 8. Adobe will also be providing facility tours to interested parties.

The Celebration of Eagles event is an annual ceremony to honor adult Eagle Scouts who have devoted their lives to service and have become leaders in their communities and in the world. This year, we will be honoring outstanding community leaders at an elegant reception as they receive either Outstanding or Distinguished Eagle Scout Awards.

These men have devoted a lifetime to their profession, avocation, community, and beliefs, at great sacrifice to themselves and their families. Each recipient will receive recognition worthy of a lifetime‚Äôs accomplishments.

What to Expect This Year

We have made some great changes to this year’s event. It will be held at the Adobe Lehi Building. It will also feature inspiring speakers, exciting entertainment, and elegant hors-d’oeuvres.

Val Hale, journalist and Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development,  will address attendees as the master of ceremonies.

Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox will be the keynote speaker at the Celebration of Eagles event. Spencer J. Cox was sworn in as Utah’s 8th Lieutenant Governor on October 16, 2013. As Lieutenant Governor, he serves as the chief election officer, liaison between the governor and the state legislature, and serves on 20 committees and commissions, chairing 12 of them. Spencer was born and raised in the town of Fairview, Utah. He and his wife Abby both come from large families and were raised on farms in Sanpete County, where they learned the value of hard work and collaboration. Spencer and Abby are the parents of four children: Gavin, Kaleb, Adam, and Emma Kate.

Folk artist Eric Dowdle will also be at the event to showcase his collaboration with our Council and our oldest camp, Camp Maple Dell. He will be answering questions and signing autographs. Each event attendee will receive a swag bag with one of the items being an Eric Dowdle surprise.

We are very excited to recognize these outstanding men and reminisce with them about nights around the campfire and their adventures in the great outdoors.
