The Local Boy Scouts of America recognized individuals and organizations that have shown a commitment of service to Rockford, with their annual Legacy of Service Awards at the Radisson Hotel on Tuesday afternoon.
This year, Bergstrom CEO Dave Rydell and the Arc of Winnebago, Boone and Ogle Counties were recipients of the award.
Rydell said his recognition belongs to everyone who works at Bergstrom.
“To people who are in need, to educational institutions, and health organizations, and the arts. We like to support it all, but we have a particular soft spot in our heart for those that are struggling,” he said.
All the money raised at Tuesday’s event benefits the Blackhawk Area Council’s Scout-reach program, which provides scouting for free to in-need Rockford youth.
