The Boy Scouts honored three exceptional volunteers at their Annual Council Recognition Dinner on Saturday.

The Silver Beaver Award is the highest honor the Voyageurs Area Council can give. On Saturday, they awarded it to three volunteers: Dena Cyr, Jack Burklund and Todd Johnson.

Scout Executive Dave Nolle said there are many reasons for the awards to be given out.

"It could be someone that makes a very meaningful impact in a single, relatively short period of time," he said. "It could be somebody that's been a scout leader for a lifetime and they've made a difference one scout at a time, if you will."

The territory covered by the Voyageurs Area Council includes about 1,500 volunteers and 4,000 scouts.
