Congratulations to Trent P. Troop 451's newest Eagle Scout

Saturday evening, in a serene Chapel setting in the woods overlooking Lake Lewisville, nearly 100 friends and familiy gathered for Trent P's Eagle Court of Honor to celebrate his achieving Scouting's highest rank. As with many of Trent's Scouting accomplishments, the ceremony was unique, impressive and in the true spirit of what it means to be an Eagle Scout. Only 2% of those who enter Scouting ever attain the rank of Eagle, but Troop 451 is proud to count Trent as our 6th Eagle Scout this year. Trent, your friends, family and fellow Troop 451 members are both proud of, and happy for you. Many congratulations to you and your family on this outstanding honor.

One of the neatest features of the campsite is the little chapel built into the side of the hill up in the woods. It's quite a reverent, serene place during the day, but on Saturday nig…
