Area mayors host scouting luncheon

Posted:

Some pretty special people were the guests of honor at the Mayors' Scouting Luncheon in South Bend on Tuesday.

The LaSalle Council of the Boy Scouts of America wanted to thank those who have contributed to the organization.  Mayors Pete Buttigieg, Dave Wood, Dick Moore and Mark Senter served as hosts for the event.

Two awards were given out during the luncheon for those the organization says have shown integrity, leadership and help to the community.

One Eagle Scout talked about why being a Boy Scout is so much fun.  "What is it I don't enjoy. It's all very interesting. There are things I do nobody gets a chance to do anymore. We shoot guns at camp, we work on swimming skills which many people do not have, we work on all sorts of things most people do not have access to regularly," said Eagle Scout Gus Ladwig.

Proceeds from the luncheon will go to future leaders through the local scouting program, including camp scholarships.
