Los Padres Council Boy Scouts to Honor Leader Karl Willig at Celebration of Youth Event

Los Padres Council, Boy Scouts of America invites the community to its fifth annual Celebration of Youth event Oct. 22, 2015, at the historic Santa Barbara Club.

The event will take place on the Club’s eye catching lawn and terrace.

This year’s celebration will honor longtime community leader and Scouting supporter, Karl Willig.  

Former president and chairman of Mission Linen and current board chairman of the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission, Willig has made scouting one of his many lifelong passions. 

Although his modesty precedes him, the Los Padres Council could not miss the opportunity to recognize and admire such a steadfast supporter of the scouting family. 

In company with Willig will be some notable members of the Santa Barbara community, including  last year’s Good Scout Award recipient Pete Jordano of Jordano’s Foodservice along with members of the local business community including Wells Fargo, Northern Trust, Mission Linen Supply, Jordano’s and Bryant & Sons, Ltd..   

If you would like to attend, please register or contact Los Padres Council at 805.967.0105 or email, Scout Executive/CEO Carlos Cortez at [email protected].

The event’s reception will begin at 6:00 p.m. with dinner being served at 7:00 p.m.   

Take part in a legacy that has endured in our community since 1914. We look forward to your attendance.

— Peter McClintock is the district executive for the Los Padres Council, Boy Scouts of America.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
