Court of Honor - Nov. 2013

The Scouts earned quite a number of awards, since the last Court of Honor in May.  We had at least ten (10) ranks earned, including one Life, and over 40 merit badges.  Here are a couple of photos from the event.

Alan's Eagle Project

Just a couple of photos from the first day of Alan's Eagle Project.  The project was to scrape and paint over 400 feet of railing around Our Lady of Vietnam Roman Catholic Church. This work was completed in Oct. 2013.

Mr. Robert M. Gates to be new BSA National President.

Robert M. Gates, a Distinguished Eagle Scout and our nation’s 22nd secretary of defense, has been elected to the national executive board of the Boy Scouts of America. Gates will serve as a member of the executive committee and as the national president-elect. 

This move means that upon approval of voting members of the National Council, Gates would begin a two-year term as the BSA national president in May 2014. The national president works alongside Chief Scout Executive Wayne Brock and National Commissioner Tico Perez to form the National Key 3 that guides the organization.
