Eagle with a Broken Wing*
Parker's project was to build a fire ring and seating area in one of the city parks. He had a car wash to raise the money for the project and then worked with the Fire Marshall and the Parks Department to get the project rolling. It was a good project and he did a good job getting it organized.
Last Thursday night he passed his Board of Review. It is an interview with seasoned Scout Leaders to determine if the young man possesses the qualities that BSA expects from an Eagle Scout and if they understand the values and principles of the BSA and have incorporated them into daily life. Parker passed with flying colors.
*His wing isn't really broken- but he's been in a sling for two weeks. Parker has a "separated shoulder" from a questionable move in his last wrestling meet. Hopefully it wasn't his last wrestling meet! It is healing and now we are moving into physical therapy.
