It's been a long road for Chuck and this past Sunday he was finally awarded for his efforts. Chuck does not do what he does for recognition, but that does not disqualify him from the honor. On May 17th Chuck Mertes received the Silver Beaver Award. The Silver Beaver is the highest council level award that can be given to an adult leader in scouting and is given for exceptional service in scouting and the community.
After over 20 years of dedicated service to Troop 172, we congratulate Chuck Mertes for becoming the 2015 recipient of the Silver Beaver Award.
