Gathering of Eagles to be held

MILLMONT — A Gathering of Eagles will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 12 at Camp Karoodinha, 225 Thomas Dam Road.

The event will honor the 65 scouts who earned the rank of Eagle Scout over the past year. These young men have shown dedication not common in the youth of this or any other time as only 4 to 6 percent of all Scouts earn this highly esteemed rank, contributing nearly 10,000 hours of community service through their Eagle Projects.

Bob Garrett, president and CEO of the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce and chairman for the Council’s Camping committee, will be the master of ceremonies.

Michael Piecuch, Eagle Scout Alumni and Snyder County District Attorney, will welcome the guests.

The council will name each Eagle class for an individual in the community who has illustrated the values of Scouting in their daily lives. The 2017-2018 Class of Eagles will be named for Dr. Douglas Spotts, who exemplifies the values of Scouting in his dedication to his family, work and service to others and to his community.
