I am sure others will put in their experience. My observations have been as follows:
Troops generally pay for the presentation kit (Eagle ribbon, patch, mother's pin, father's tie tack, eagle tie tack) and Eagle neckerchief and slide
Troops often pay for cake and punch and table service and the committee serves so that the mother is not tied up at the table
Troops often pay for printing of programs and/or announcements
A few troops in this area provide a special gift for the the Eagle such as membership in NESA or a wall plaque
One troop has a strong tradition of flowers for the mother but the scout buys the flowers
Another troop has a strong tradition also but the "mothers" booster club buys the flowers
In setting the policy, remember the long range impact.

Our troop will be having its first Eagle scout this year. Our troop
committee will be meeting tomorrow night and one of the agenda items
is should the troop provide a memento to the scout at his Court of
Honor. What does other troops provide for the Eagle Court of Honor?
Any imput would be appreciated. Thanks! YIS.
PS. We should have at least five more scouts earning their Eagle in
the next twelve months and we want to establish a troop policy on
what we provide.
