On Saturday, May 6, over 100 local Scout leaders attended the Mission Peak Scouting District Annual Adult Volunteer Recognition Dinner at the Southern Alameda County Buddhist Church in Union City.
According to Bob Doherty, the event's Master of Ceremonies, "The Annual Mission Peak District Dinner was a great celebration. The East Bay Scout Band serenaded at start of the evening and Crew 2 once again prepared a fabulous meal. There was a great silent auction to raise funds for the Scouting programs."
