Friend To Friend in Scouting

The Daniel Carter Beard Masonic Scouter Award was created to honor those Masons who are currently registered Scout leaders and have rendered outstanding service to the Scouting movement. An individual cannot apply; he must be nominated by a Brother Mason and be approved by his own Lodge and District Deputy Grand Master. The District Deputy Grand Master or someone designated by him presents it at a Lodge meeting.

Since the program's inception 378 Pennsylvania Masons and 733 Masons from 43 other states and 4 other countries have received the award medallion, certificate, and purple and gold square knot patch that represents the BSA Community Organization Award program. The award regalia was recently upgraded to include an enameled reverse on the medallion and a blue leather casing. Earlier awards may not be traded, but a recipient may purchase one replacement for $20. This is not a "fund-raising project" for the Pennsylvania Youth Foundation or the Grand Lodge. All income is used to support promotion of the program.

Petitions and criteria for the award can be obtained through Lodge Secretaries or by visiting the Grand Lodge web site at www.pagrandlodge.org/pyf/pgm/scouter.
