Haines Executives Receive Good Scout Awards And Raise Vital Funds For Regions Scouting Ciommunity

On Tuesday evening, November 17, 2015, Scott B. Haines and James T. Haines each received the Cradle of Liberty Council, Boy Scouts of America (BSA) “Good Scout Awards.” Scott B. and James T. Haines respectively fill the President/Chief Executive Officer, and the Chief Operating Officer positions at Skippack, PA based H&K Group, Inc. (H&K), one of the Mid-Atlantic Region’s largest and most respected heavy civil contracting and construction materials companies. 

Amidst much scouting tradition, regalia, camaraderie and emotion, the Haines brothers received their awards at the 56th Annual Malcolm A. Schweiker Century Club Dinner, which is one of the Cradle of Liberty Councils largest annual fundraising events. With the help and support of family, friends, H&K Group business associates and many of the region’s top business executives and philanthropists, Tuesday evening’s Century Club Dinner raised in excess of $70,000 in support of the Cradle of Liberty Council, BSA.

Having literally grown up in the heavy civil contracting and construction materials arena, the Haines brothers were honored Tuesday evening for the deep passion they share for their company, their business sector, their employees, the community and the ideals they exemplify as expressed within BSA Scout Oath and Law. Over their 35-year business relationship together, Scott and Jim Haines have forged a unique and successful bond that has not only translated to success in the boardroom, but also gained the respect and admiration of their colleagues, employees and business community. These shared credentials, fervor for their company and the scouting community were clearly visible as both Scott and Jim Haines graciously received their “Good Scout Awards” on Tuesday evening.

The Century Club Dinner was first started by Malcolm A. Schweiker, the founder and Chairman of Olean Tile Co. in Lansdale, PA to engage the local business leaders in a dinner to support Scouting. The dinner continues to benefit Scouts in the Harleysville, Lansdale, Souderton, Hatfield and surrounding PA communities. The Cradle of Liberty Council, BSA currently serves over 16,500 boys and girls in Montgomery, Delaware and Philadelphia Counties.
