Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy will host the 31st Annual Mayor’s Breakfast for Scouting on Thursday, Oct. 20 at the Porthole Restaurant in Lynn.
Eagle Scout Andrew Krause, Scoutmaster of Troop 121 at St. Mary’s Church, will be the program’s featured speaker. Andrew is the son of Item sports editor Steve Krause and Linda Krause.

Helen Mihos, who retired as principal of the Lincoln-Thompson School following an outstanding 38-year career in education, and Ryan McDermott, a Lynn Police officer since 2005 and current student resource officer at a Lynn middle school, will receive the 2016 Distinguished Service Awards.
David Solimine Sr. and Alan F. Kline are the co-chairmen of the breakfast that recognizes achievements in Scouting and is a fundraiser for Scouting activities in the region.
