Amador County – The Golden Empire Council of the Boy Scouts of America is planning a luncheon to honor Jackson Mayor Patrick Crew on June 20, when it presents a report on the State of Scouting in the community.

Judge Susan Harlan from the Amador Superior Court will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the second annual “Report to the Community” celebration of Scouting.

Started in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has served millions of youths across the country and currently serves nearly 200 youths in the communities of Amador County. The proceeds of the second annual luncheon will offset the cost for Scouts to attend summer camps and the National Scout Jamboree in 2013 while providing more opportunities for new youths to join scouting.

Boy Scouts District Executive Brian Casper said the “luncheon is sponsored by Stan Lukowicz, an Amador County local business owner and humanitarian, and we expect a solid turnout of local business and community leaders to help our local scouts attend summer camps.”

Casper said: “It is vital we provide more opportunities for young people to join Scouting,” which is “an organization that has influenced more than 110 million lives during the past 102 years.”

There is no charge to attend the luncheon. All attendees will be asked to contribute whatever they believe is appropriate to the Golden Empire Council of the Boy Scouts of America which oversees more than 18,000 scouts in northern California, including all of Amador County. Table sponsorships are still available at $500 per table.

The luncheon is from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 20 at Thomi’s Café Banquet Room in Jackson.
