Linda Kramer Receives Boy Scout Recognition

Silver Beaver Award

As a movement whose leadership is overwhelmingly volunteer, the Boy Scouts of America recognizes the need to acknowledge the invaluable services that men and women render to youth. Of the awards that the BSA presents each year to those on the local council, regional, and national levels, the Silver Beaver is among the most prestigious. This recognition is granted by one’s own peers in Scouting for distinguished service to youth. (Other BSA awards, by comparison, are granted only to those who have completed a prescribed course of study or have participated in special training sessions.)

Established in 1931, the Silver Beaver Award is presented within a BSA local council for distinguished service to young people. The Silver Beaver is one of the highest awards bestowed on adult members of the BSA. Less than 20 people receive this award each year.

Linda will be recognized during the Greater St Louis Area Council Awards Dinner in May. Please join me in congratulating Linda on this distinguished honor.

It was discovered via a search engine that Lillian, a recent addition to the Arconati Family, is not the first one to bear that name. Please take a moment and view the results at the St. Louis Public Library – Obituary Index for 1993. Search the page using your browser for the following entry:

ARCONATI, LILLIAN (nee Daigger) 11/1

The parents, Jon & Kelly have been interviewed and it sounds like this one is a simple and interesting coincidence. It should be noted that the new Mom & Dad are doing fine and adjusting well.

Finally, Ruby Herod was interviewed as well and it is possible that she knew the older Lillian, though it was not 100% clear at this time how she was related to us. More details will come later.
