Thomas’s project was the construction and installation of a picnic table and a 189 sq. ft. paverstone walkway,  and the clearing of a 250 ft. stretch of overgrown brush surrounding a pond. The project was located at senior care facility, Brookdale Brighton. This project restored the beauty of the pond and created a relaxation area for the community.

Thomas earned a total of 26 Merit Badges from 2013 to 2017 as part of his requirement to become an Eagle Scout. A sample of some of the badges he earned were: Citizenship in the Community, Fish and Wildlife, First Aid, Personal Fitness, Wilderness Survival, Camping, Lifesaving, Sports, and Orienteering. A minimum of 21 Merit Badges is required for any Eagle Scout.

Thomas was joined by his parents, familiy and friends at the ceremony held at the First Baptist Church of Chili and followed with a celebratory reception.

“We are so proud of our troop and the leadership these young men provide through eagle scout projects that help our local religious institutions, schools and community,” said Bernie Fingar, Scout Master. “We look to advance as many scouts as we can to the rank of Eagle and are always pleased with the creativity, thought  and effort that go into the projects especially since fewer than five percent of Boy Scouts nationwide attain this illustrious rank.”

Troop 90 also celebrated their Spring Court of Awards honoring nine scouts who advanced in rank and all scouts who earned Merit Badges. Colin Guilfoyle, Adam Root and Graham Wohlers joined the troop at the Rank of Scout;  Joshua Smith advanced to Tenderfoot; Tim Dewey, Casey Larson, Jonathan Miller and Aiden Snover advanced to Scout 1st Class; and John Tracy advanced to Life Scout.

To support their continuing activities Troop 90 will hold their annual chicken barbeque on Saturday, August 25.
