Honoring a Flock of Eagles
Six young Laguna Beach residents recently received the Eagle Scout Award, Boy Scouts of America’s highest honor, at a ceremony attended by over 100 guests.
Ben Hanson, Michael and Steven Bell, Tyler Kessler, and Ryan and Aaron Lee, all Laguna Beach High School students and members of Troop 38, which meets at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Recognized for their outstanding citizenship and numerous civic contributions, their scout projects included building — furniture for the Boys and Girls Club, a storage closet for Friendship Shelter, a podium for a local church, a storage platform for a local charity — and supplying 50 American flags to mark national holidays in Laguna Beach.
Scouts Recognized for Their Achievements
Boy Scouts from Troop 35, who have earned badges or rank advancement, will be acknowledged by their parents and peers at their tri-annual awards ceremony to be held at 6 p.m. on Feb. 13 in Tankersley Hall at the Laguna Presbyterian Church. There will also be a special presentation by the “Friends of Scouting.”
Troop 35 is over 60 years old and has an active calendar that includes backpacking, rock climbing, skiing, summer camp and many other adventures. Boys between the ages of 11 and 18 are always welcome to attend a meeting and consider joining. Contact Scoutmaster Doug Rubino at [email protected] for more information.
