Eagle Projects

Our troop has been busy with Eagle projects.  We have had 4 scouts over the past several months work on their Eagle projects. Congratulations to Jacob P, Adam K, Steven S and Anthony S.  Projects have ranged from building stairs and shelves for a the high school theatre department, clearing invasive species at the Morton Arboretum, upgrading a busy corner of the Illinois Prairie Path and installing a bench, and collecting food and toiletry items to send care packages to troops overseas.  What great projects!  Our scouts have made an impact on the communities around us. We are very proud of all of them and thanks to all the scouts and their parents for standing behind our scouts to get this done.  Check out the photos below to see some of our scouts in action.
