Eagle Point Boy Scout Troop 48 has two new Eagle Scouts. Allen DeArmond-Sattler and Jesse Lawson have earned the highest rank possible in Boy Scouts. Only about 2.5 percent of youth involved in the program earn this prestigious award.
One of the requirements of the rank is that each candidate must do
a project in which they show their leadership skills. The project must
benefit the community or other organization and cannot be on Boy Scout
DeArmond-Sattler chose to help out the kids in Butte
Falls. Being a baseball fan himself, he took on the very large task of
building new bleachers at Mac Field in Butte Falls. Sattler did say the
the project turned out to be more involved than he first thought but he
saw it through to the finish.
Lawson chose a project closer to
home. Lawson lives just off of Stevens Rd. in Eagle Point and his
project was to extend the Avenue of Flags up Stevens Rd. and on to the
Veterans Memorial Cemetery on Riley Rd. Lawson worked with Helen
Wolgamott and others to clear this project with the county and to drill
and place all the flags holders. Now he gets to enjoy the flags several
times a year from his front yard.
Each of these projects were a huge undertaking and each will be enjoyed by many people for many years to come.
