Troop 79 Eagle projects and Council recognition

Late last year a call went out to the Scouts of the Chicago area and beyond: Bring us your best Eagle projects for consideration in a national competition. One of those efforts submitted was the work of our very own Michael Y. And he won!

His Eagle Project was selected as THE one and only PTAC Top Eagle Project 2018! Next his project goes to the Regional level and perhaps on to National. Last weekend, while the rest of the troop was roughing it at camp, Michael and Jake N., among other recent Eagle Scouts from the region, were recognized at a special dinner in their honor. Can you find them in the photo? (Hint: upper left)

In other news from a Scout hot on the trail to Eagle, Matthew N. wanted to thank all the Scouts who helped him with a project to benefit his high school. “The project is for the Lane Tech band. The band currently has no record of our music. We will be doing a few things. First, we will be clearing out a storage room and cleaning and painting the walls. There are a bunch of file cabinets that we will be getting rid of that are full of scores. We will be transferring these scores to bins and building shelving in the room. We will also be cataloging the scores in the file cabinets, as well as scores in two other locations. Unlike most scouting events, this is one where your phone will not only be allowed but required for cataloging!”
