On the night of Tuesday May 15, 2012 the Ventura County Council of the Boy Scouts of America honored 176 scouts with a recognition dinner for achieving the highly coveted rank of Eagle Scout during the past 12 months. The dinner was held at the Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach Hotel in Ventura, California.
Delivering his award winning speech was Eagle Scout Andrew DeFatta of Troop 633. The evening was highlighted by Joe Wiegand, regarded as the premiere Theodore Roosevelt impersonator, delivering his keynote speech in Teddy’s famous “Bully” style.
Four members of the Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge #2477 attended as sponsors of four Eagle Scouts pictured below.
