2021 Eagle Banquet
The Eagle Banquet returns on Thursday, June 24, 2021 for a virtual event honoring Scouts throughout the Aloha Council who earned their Eagle Scout rank with the classes of 2019-2020 and 2020-2021. The Aloha Chapter of the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA), along with Aloha Council staff, are planning the event and further details are expected soon. Note that we encourage newly minted Eagles to get involved with NESA, in order to stay engaged with Scouting and to realize the benefits that our strong local network offers for mentorship, job opportunities, fellowship, and continued community leadership.
While previous Eagle Banquet celebrations have typically been limited to immediate family members due to ballroom-space limitations, we are excited that our virtual event will allow Scouts to invite as many family and friends to help honor and celebrate these outstanding young people in their exceptional achievement.
