Hello! I am Denise Stanley, a Mate with Columbia Ranger Ship 361. I
have been a silent participant in this list for a little over a month.
I am finally writing because I too have a favor to ask.
Eagle Scout is a tremendous accomplishment for any young man, no matter
what scout unit "produced" it. While we are all very proud of Randy
Fulcher, he is not the only explorer in Ship 361 to achieve this high
honor. In fact, our ship is thrice blessed of late with Eagle Scouts,
and we are extremely proud of all of them.
On January 10, 1997, we celebrated the achievement of Eagle Scout by
Columbia Ranger Sea Explorer Richard Suchoski at his Court of Honor held
by B.S.A. Troop 757. Rich was a ship leader--and a handy sailor--for
two years while he worked on his Eagle, with the help and encouragement
of his shipmates, through his troop. He is now away at college, but we
look forward to sailing with Rich again this summer.
The rank of Eagle Scout will be bestowed upon Columbia Ranger Sea
Explorer Gregory C. Lemich at a Court of Honor on Thursday, April 24,
where his shipmates will celebrate Greg's achievement with B.S.A. Troop
874. Greg is only 16 years old and in his short time with the ship has
already fulfilled most of the requirements for Apprentice rank. He has
set his sights on Quartermaster, and is highly motivated. I am
confident he will achieve his goal.
Would you please take a few moments to send Greg a letter of
congratulations in care of me? Please either send it to me directly
<email@example.com> OFFLIST or, if you prefer to use snail-mail, send
Eagle Scout Gregory C. Lemich

Please be sure to let Greg know where you are from and what your
affiliation with Sea Scouting is.
Thank you very much.
