Boy Scout Troop 1 of Narragansett held an important event in late January 23 at the Narragansett Community Center – On that frigid night, more than 100 people attended to witness the Eagle Ceremony of Gregory Hamilton.
As with all Eagle Scouts, Greg had to complete a minimum of 21 Merit Badges (12 of which had to be Eagle Merit Badges) and an Eagle Project. Below are some details of his project:
“Each Eagle Candidate must plan and supervise an Eagle Service Project. This service demonstrates a Scouts’ capacity and willingness to exert his leadership ability in activities that are constructive and worthwhile in his community.”
Greg’s Eagle project consisted of Greg and his team of helpers rebuilding of the chicken coup and area for the Narragansett FFA, located at Narragansett High School. This coop holds the chickens that produce the eggs for the FFA chapter to sell.
For his project he re-did some of the beams, re-wired the wire on the outside, repainted in outside in original stain and inside in the original color. Also, he cut limbs from low hanging trees to give the coop more sun.
The project was begun and completed on July 28.
“After a Scout has completed the requirements for the rank of Eagle, he must be reviewed by an Eagle Board of Review, made up of members of the Troop Committee and representatives of the Council for the South West Area. This board of Review meets to assure that the ideals of Scouting and the esteem of the Eagle Rank are upheld.”
