Eagle Brag: Owen Carpenter, Troop 29 - Lima NY
Tue, 20 Oct 1998 15:51:27 EDT
If I may take a moment of your time, to brag a little as a
Last month, Owen Carpenter, one of our very active Life scouts,
successfully passed his Eagle Board of Review! He has held many
positions of responsibility, APL, PL, Troop Guide, and SPL.
It has been a busy year for Owen, he is very active in school, the
Drama club, Wrestling team and Scouts. His Eagle project consisted of
repairing and painting the towns old "Pump House". This old building
is being used for storage and the Temporary Dog pound (we are a really
small town :-) On his project he supervised the Troop, members of the
Rotary (our Charger Org.), town maintenance crew, and assorted
friends. The progress went beyond our expectations and included the
complete trim, and almost the entire exterior.
The BOR went well, our CC and Advancement Chair, Owen's parents,
were on the "other" side of the table for a second time, I don't think
that they were as nervous as Owen, but it was real close. We had three
Reps from our Council, along with our COR, and a family friend, on the
BOR. Owen was very "calm, cool, and collected".
This is our, (the new troop leadership), Third Eagle scout and the
Carpenter families second Eagle. We have three Life scouts that are
about to start their own personal "Run to the Eagle trail".
We have tentatively been able to schedule Owen's Eagle court for
late November. All of my co-Scouts-L members are invited to attend if
you are in the area.
If any of you would like to send Owen and/or his Dad, Steve Carpenter,
and e-mail letter they are reachable at the following addresses:
Owen Carpenter, (New Eagle): OWENCARP@aol.com (I think this is still valid)
Steve Carpenter, (CC, Dad) : Greatzog@aol.com
Thanks for your time,
