3 from Scout Troop 142 complete Eagle project

Three members of Wyoming Boy Scout Troop 142 have completed their Eagle Scout projects and were recognized for their accomplishments this winter at a court of honor ceremony.

Honored at the Eagle ceremony in February were Jacob Schwanz, Evan Finley and Matt Siebert.

In their own words, below are the descriptions of the projects completed by the three troop members.

Matt Siebert:  “I landscaped around a pavilion at Lord Of The Lakes Lutheran church, laying brick, rock and put in a fire pit/grill. It is a spot where the youth can gather and spend time with their peers roasting a hotdog over the fire.”

Evan Finley:  “I created a flower garden for the Rick Doyle Memorial Community Building in Stacy. The garden is 90 feet long and seven feet wide and runs the length of the building. The multicolored flowers will accent the building nicely and beautify the area for years to come. Thank you to all the local businesses that gave financial donations and to the Stacy Lions for their donation of funds and support of the project.”

Jacob Schwanz:  “My Eagle Scout project was the construction of a chimney swift tower. Chimney swifts are birds that the Audubon Society of Minnesota is trying to bring back to this region by erecting homes for them that are like the open chimneys that they used to live in before chimneys began to be capped off. Ron Windingstad of the Audubon Society and Lee Bakewell were great helps to me with this project.”
