Congratulations to Eagle Scouts Kada and Starling for an accomplishment that they will wear proudly for the rest of their lives. While the gazebo and benches are a wonderful benefit to the community, and we thank you for them, obtaining the rank of Eagle Scout is a personal commitment that few aspire to and fewer obtain. Being part of Scouting provides young men with the leadership opportunities that no other activity can match. Obtaining Scouting highest rank, Eagle Scout, is an outstanding achievement.
