I have just returned from our District's 23rd annual "Eagle Recognition
Banquet" this evening. It brought me extreme pleasure to see our District's
Eagles for 1995 receive, together, some accolades and tokens for their
Most of all, it reminded me why I keep on Scouting. Wearing different hats,
one gets to meet a lot of young boys who are on the Trail to Eagle. Some of
these Scouts were in the Cubbing program when I first met them. Today, they
are Outstanding young Men. I was especially proud of one individual who not
only attained the rank of Eagle, but he also received the Vigil Honor,in the
OA, this past year. It doesn't get much better then this.
Ok, I lied, I was a little more enthused when my son received the above
honors a few years ago..
But this is what makes that 1 hr/week worth it.
Thank You for your indulgence.
