Scout earns Eagle honor
Troop 311 hosted an Eagle Court of Honor at their building in Rebuck Aug. 12 for Caleb Conrad of Troop 325 in Northumberland. Caleb is a son of Jay O. and Holly L. Conrad.
Caleb's Eagle Project was to repaint the floor in the basement of St. John's Lutheran Church on 300 Queen St. in Northumberland.
The basement was the former communion hall and was a challenge because all the furniture needed to be removed and the floor scrubbed of paint chips which were causing a safety hazard. After scrubbing and drying, it took many coats of paint till desired results were obtained.
Caleb is a 2014 graduate of Shikellamy High School where he played tennis. He attends Calvary Tabernacle on the island between Northumberland and Sunbury. He has held the positions of Senior Patrol Leader and Troop Guide within Troop 325. He has helped during spring clean up at Camp Karoondinha and helped during times of flooding in Northumberland.
Lynda Schlegel Culver and representatives from John Gordner's office and the Army were in attendance to congratulate Caleb.
