Eagle Project at Work

Greetings from Troop 66. We had yet another Eagle Project completed yesterday. This project was that of Life Scout Charlie T. Charlie raised funds and installed a swing set at the Hines V.A. Hospital in Maywood for the benefit of the children who are visiting the patients at the hospital. It was a cool and rainy day, but that didn't dampen the high-spirited Scouts who are pictured here.

Well done to Charlie and all of our other Life Scouts who are completing their projects!

Troop 66 Court of Honor

Greetings from Troop 66,

We had a great Court of Honor this evening with 29 scouts getting 11 rank advancements, 64 merit badges, and 2 Interpreter’s Strips. We installed our new Senior Patrol Leader (SPL), Charlie T tonight. (Thanks so much to AJB for his tenure as SPL!). Charle and Mark C will be sharing the SPL duties to balance their busy high school schedules. Matt H will be serving as our Assistant Senior Patrol Leader (ASPL).

Fantastic job by Henry and Carter in planning and executing the Court of Honor. Well done, boys!

Congratulations to all of the boys who advanced in rank and/or earned merit badges! We are proud of you.

Mr. C
