The Boy Scouts of America has grown to become a vital source in the development of our youth through its many programs which encourage leadership, responsibility and community service. Every time a scout reaches the rank of Eagle Scout, that is something very special. I always make it a priority to attend these ceremonies on behalf of the Eagle Scouts because they are so in tuned to the community and have worked hard to accomplish amazing things.
On June 24th, I attended the ceremony of Noah Munn, Troop 173, at St. Andrew Lutheran Church whose project involved the construction of bat houses in the Mount Tabor neighborhood. He provided a habitat for bats which are now considered to be endangered. With this project, the mosquito population was reduced in the area and the project was well received by the residents of this small community.
