Troop 224G in Lafayette introduced its three newest Eagle Scouts: Caitlin Crinnion, Dakota Goyert and Hazel Krozek. All three joined Troop 224G on Feb. 1, 2019, the first day girls could officially join Scouts BSA. They become the fourth, fifth and sixth girls to eagle from Troop 224G.
To achieve the rank of Eagle, a Scout must earn 21 Merit badges, including 14 required Merit badges. They must demonstrate leadership skills, scout spirit and they must develop, plan and execute a community service project while leading other scouts.
Crinnion, a junior at Acalanes, led a group of scouts to repair and reroof the school bus stop that serves the Oak Springs neighborhood of Orinda. The bus stop was originally constructed in the 1920s and was in desperate need of repairs and a new roof. Over two days Crinnion led a group of scouts as they erected scaffolding, replaced rotten wood and put a new fire resistant roof on top of the bus stop.
Goyert, also a junior at Acalanes, led scouts in painting a mural at Jelly's Place. Jelly's Place is a nonprofit animal shelter in San Pablo. They rescue cats and dogs from all over the world in hopes of giving them a better life. Goyert decided to use her creativity and paint a colorful set of murals. Over the course of a few weeks, Goyert created stencils, primed walls, sourced supplies and painted a set of murals. Thanks to the help of fellow scouts, Goyert was able to brighten up Jelly's Place.
Krozek, a junior at Campolindo High School, saw a need in her neighborhood during COVID and did something about it.? She led fellow scouts to build two mini book libraries for her neighborhood.? They built them by hand, painted them and set them on posts in two separate locations in the Silver Springs neighborhood.? When it was time to fill them, Hazel and her amazing neighbors filled them with books so everyone had something to read during those long days.
Troop 224G is the sister troop to Troop 224B and both currently meet in a hut behind Happy Valley Elementary. Later this year both troops will be moving to their new permanent home on Camino Diablo Road across from the Lafayette Tennis Club.
