January 09, 2000|By Sloane Brown

Boy Scouts awards dinner "Strong values, strong leaders, character counts" -- the theme of the Boy Scouts of America -- was borne out by the guest list at the Baltimore Area Council, BSA's annual Henry A. Rosenberg Sr. Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner.

To begin with, Cardinal William H. Keeler, this year's award recipient, was honored for his embodiment of Boy Scout principles and dedication to improving the quality of life in the Baltimore area.

Then, there were about 390 other guests who gathered at the Hyatt Regency event, including: Raymond "Chip" Mason, event chair; Mike Batza, Charlie Cole, Russ Jones, Bill Crowley and John Pearson, dinner co-chairs; Henry A. Rosenberg Jr., national BSA vice president; Ted Verdery, BSA Baltimore Council chair; Carolyn McGuire-Frenkil, president of Substance Abuse Services; Carroll Bodie, vice president and general counsel for Procter & Gamble; Kathleen Counts, financial consultant for First Union Bank; Brandon Howell, 14, Star Scout and the dinner's youth speaker; and members of Baltimore area Boy Scout troops Nos. 118, 37 and 18, who posted the colors in the evening's opening ceremony.

The event raised $210,000 for Baltimore Area Council BSA urban scouting programs.
