He has selected "A Knight for Scouting" as the theme, reminiscent of
the Medieval Knights of the Round Table.
"Just as in Scouting, such young men developed skills and a code of
honor as squires before advancing to knighthood and positions of
leadership within their community," Rabe said.
Rabe brings to this position many years of experience as a Cub and Boy
Scout himself and later as an adult leader. He has also served as
Foothill District chairman and a member of the Council Board and
His father was active in Scouting and his sons are successful Scouts,
Ken as an Eagle Scout and Scott as a Life Scout.
Backing up the auction chairman are committee members Harriet Hammond,
Bob and Joan Nellis, Dorraine and Harvey Miesse, Michael Deaktor, Sam and
Kathy Engel, Sue and Gary Keyes, Deb Leishman, Paul Lacayo, Joe Ungaro,
Council Executive Director Andrew Messer, Wynne Ritch, Jack Kabateck,
Steve Lujan, Pat Rabe and Bill James.
It's an important once-a-year, fun-filled fund-raiser for the council
that attracts families and friends, Messer said.
"All proceeds from this highly successful dinner with its extensive
live and silent auction directly benefit the many Boy Scout youth
programs and activities during the year," he said.
Reservations can be secured at $100 each for the complete dinner with
entertainment and many auction items by calling the council office at
243-6282, ext. 117.
