The Flying Eagles of Troop 79
Scoutmaster Dave Keats is well known for reminding our troop’s newly minted Eagle Scouts that their Court of Honor isn’t a retirement party. That’s right, after all those years of hard work, dedication and fun, they don’t need to check out of Scouts as soon as they get the medal.
Case in point, four members of the class of 2019 “Eagle X” planned and carried out a Memorial Day weekend overnight at Indiana Dunes. While the weather was definitely a step up from the troop’s spring campout just eight weeks earlier, these guys took up residence at the same group site and explored the same dunes and trails.
We’re really proud of all our Eagles, and it’s great to see our alums drop in for the occasional troop meeting. These fine young leaders are role models, and hope they always find room in their busy lives for Scouting.
