Stanford District Awards



The Stanford District, Pacific Skyline Council,  Annual District Awards Dinner

Friday, March 9, 2012 at 6:30 p.m.

 Christ Episcopal Church in  Los Altos, CA


We are honoring Mary Rose Theis, Julie Rome Banks, and Deborah Baker with the Flame of Leadership Award.

The guest speaker is Allart Ligtenber, a member of the Rotary Club and a leader in the improvement of water treatment and solar cookers in developing countries. He will bring solar cookers in the form of a parabolic dish, foldable box, foldable cook kit, and a backpack cooker that summitted Mt Everest. He will also have water temperature sensors that measure when water reaches the pasteurization point. The Rotary Club's work in the inexpensive treatment of water has been proven to increase a community's school and work attendance levels, thereby improving the local economy.  

Please sign up by March 6, 2012 for the Stanford District Awards Dinner.

$27 per person.  Please make check payable to: Boy Scouts of America or pay by credit card at:

Stanford District

Stanford District


The Stanford District is a subdivision of the Pacific Skyline Council, Boy Scouts of America. The Stanford District has over 40 Cub Scout Packs and 30 Boy Scout Troops/Venture Crews in the cities of Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Mountain View, Stanford University, and Palo Alto.

A district is mainly interesting for adult scouters. Boys will find the council website more interesting.

The Stanford District is one of three districts within the Pacific Skyline Council and serves Palo Alto, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, and Mountain View. The full range of Boy Scouting programs is provided to over 2,300 young men and women in 65 Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Varsity Teams, Venturing Crews, and Sea Scout Ships.

Roles and Responsibilities: The district handles all the registration, the awards, printing the program, and general logistics. The host troop handles the room set-up and clean-up, decoration, food, and sometimes lines up the short guest speaker. The District generally provides the emcee.

Costs: The District charges $27 per person, and that has to include the costs of the awards, online registration fees, and other misc. things as well as the food. That allows a cost of $10 per person for food available.

Food: We want it to be a nice dinner, but not elaborate. Last year they had Olive Garden cater. The year before they had Texas Road House. They generally get cakes from Costco to save on the cost. We use paper plates and plastic silverware, but if we can round up cloth tablecloths that makes it nicer.

Volunteers: Troop 37 needs 12 adults and 12 scouts for the dinner. The Scouts generally help with set-up and clean-up, serve the food, and do the flag ceremony.

Awards: Troop 37 is allowed three adult awards and two scout awards for the Flame of Leadership award. Nominations must be submitted to the troop by February 15th.
