Eagle Recognition Dinner
January 13th, 2022
Eagle Scouts, this year's keynote speaker is Thor Retzlaff. Thor earned his Eagle Scout rank in 2013. Thor will talk about achieving this accomplishment and the formative years, and bouts of adversity that inevitably shaped him into the man he is today. Since graduating from Lewis & Clark College in 2018, Thor has been on an entrepreneurial journey, founding a media production company and several companies dedicated to understanding the affects and uses of human waste on and with the environment. During the event you can expect to hear more about Thor's adventures to the Arctic and Antarctic regions, why storytelling is a powerful tool, and why it is important to seek out inconvenient experiences.
Thor asks that everyone please watch the below video before attending the event.
It isn't to late, even though the December 31st has past we can still get you rechartered. Don't wait till it is to late. Contact your Commissioner or the Council office and we will help get you rechartered on time.
