Boy Scout Troop 200, chartered by Our Savior's Lutheran Church of Lafayette, is proud to announce its fall 2018 Eagle Scouts - Ryan Everly, Isaac Douglas, Cole Brightbill, Matthew Raffel, Maverick Fabela, Nicholas Shaw, Edward Laskey and Donovan Fuller. The new Eagle Scouts were honored at a National Eagle Court of Honor ceremony on Nov. 10. To become an Eagle Scout, a candidate must earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, including 13 Eagle-required badges, demonstrate leadership and Scout spirit, and successfully complete a community service project.
Everly is a senior at Acalanes High School. For his Eagle Scout project, he replaced broken and rotted benches between the big and small gyms at Acalanes. Douglas is a 2018 graduate of Acalanes, and currently a freshman at UC San Diego. For his Eagle project, he renovated the remainder of the benches between the gyms at Acalanes, replacing rotted surfaces with new redwood.
Brightbill, a senior at Acalanes, designed and constructed an oversized vegetable box at Burton Valley Elementary's Garden Classroom for his Eagle Scout project. Raffel, another Acalanes senior, built a drinking fountain at Springhill Elementary School, digging ditches for the pipes, laying a foundation, and then building the fountain.
Fabela is a senior at Acalanes. For his Eagle Scout project, he oversaw the collection, repair and cleaning of musical instruments, which he then delivered to the Oakland Unified School District for the use of students in need of instruments. Shaw, a senior at Campolindo High School, assembled baskets of home essentials for veterans and previously-homeless families moving into new homes for Shelter Inc.
Laskey is a senior at Acalanes. For his Eagle Scout project, he led a group of friends and younger scouts in refurbishing and repainting the Acalanes ticket booth. Fuller, also a senior at Acalanes, built a display table for the Lafayette Historical Society (located on the ground floor of the Lafayette Library and Learning Center), now being used to display periodically rotating exhibits.
Troop 200 invites boys and girls to attend its Open House at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11 at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Lafayette. For information, contact Scoutmaster Mark Weyland at jadesigns@sbcglobal.net or ASM Anthony Toribio at at7724@yahoo.com.
