Lafayette Boy Scout Troop 219 recently honored four young men who have achieved the Eagle Scout award, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America, on April 21, at Rolling Range Ranch. The scouts received recognition and proclamations from the City of Lafayette and Vice Mayor Wei-Tai Kwok, US Congressman Mark DeSaulnier, US Assemblywoman Rebecca Bauer-Khan, NASA, The Blue Angels, The White House, and The US Capitol.
To attain the rank of Eagle Scout, a Scout must earn his way up the scouting ranks from Tenderfoot to Life Scout. As a Life Scout, he must be active in the troop for at least six months, earn at least 21 required merit badges, serve in a Leadership position, and complete an approved Eagle service project helpful to any religious institution, school, nonprofit organization, or the community.
Stewart Cocotis constructed a road sign on Ygnacio Valley Road that Walnut Creek Historical Society can advertise with, and weeded and added tanbark to its surrounding area. He also constructed their main WCHS sign in the driveway and installed an information kiosk near the front porch and a covered posting board for brochures.
Rocco Fraioli found a design, purchased materials, and lead ten volunteer scouts in the building of two redwood benches for Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland. These redwood benches were constructed, sanded, stained, and later installed at JM' s dog parks.
Danny Goldwyn worked with Xenophon therapeutic horse riding for disabled youth. He built a horse pasture with 360 feet of fencing, hot wire, and two large equipment gates.
Cole Trimble built a bridge on a walking trail in Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland. The 20-foot-long, reclaimed redwood bridge is designed to protect the area from further trampling and compaction and allow for recovery of the native wetland and redwood understory.
