Lafayette Boy Scout Troop 204 will honor four scouts who achieved the Eagle Scout Rank at the Troop's 70th Eagle Court of Honor at St. Perpetua Church on March 18. Eagle Scout is the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America.
To attain the Eagle Scout rank, a Scout must earn at least 21 merit badges including 14 Eagle required badges, demonstrate leadership and Scout spirit and successfully complete an approved Eagle Service Project. In addition to the requirements above, these Troop 204 Eagle Scouts participated in the annual 50 mile backpacking trips, including planning and leading a trek on an eight-day trip.
Ben Adler of Lafayette, a junior at Acalanes High School, worked with Napa and Sonoma to restore the habitat of the barn owl population by building 30 owl boxes.? These boxes will be placed in both areas to restore worn out homes, or homes destroyed by wildfires.
Andrew Baxter of Walnut Creek, a junior at Las Lomas High School, collected over 100 pairs of running shoes to be distributed by One World Running to support the charity in their mission to bring people closer together through running.
Antonio Godwin of Lafayette, a senior at Acalanes High School, led a donation drive to collect new and used soccer equipment to be sent to a mission in Mexico through an orphanage organization called Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos.
Milan Reimer of Lafayette, a junior at De La Salle High School, led a group of volunteers to refurbish the four baseball dugouts at Stanley Middle School. The group sanded and repainted the benches and backstops and built four removable bat and helmet racks with the goal of encouraging more kids to experience the joys of playing baseball at Stanley.
Troop 204, Lafayette's oldest BSA troop, is celebrating 91 years of scouting and community service and is currently accepting new members. For more information, please visit?
