Congratulations to the 49 scouts in Indian Prairie District who achieved the rank of eagle in 2018. Their eagle projects contributed over 8450 service hours to the community.
These eagle scouts will be honored with the more than 300 eagle scouts in the Three Fires Council Eagle Class of 2018 at the Gathering of Eagles Banquet on February 15, 2019 at the Sheridan Lisle Hotel. The 2018 Eagles should have received their invitations. See the Three Fires Council web site for more details if you would like to attend or sponsor an eagle.
Thanks to all the unit leaders, unit committees, merit badge counselors, coaches, parents, fellow scouts and friends who helped these scouts achieve the Eagle rank. Also, a big thank you to the Indian Prairie District Advancement Committee who contributed hundreds of hours assisting and reviewing these candidates: Mark Baker, Jack Koberstine, Bill Marineau, Tim Maurer, Dave Rypka, Julie Rypka, and Vinton Trowbridge.
Reminder: All eagles (whether they plan to attend the Gathering of Eagles or not) should attach a photo of themselves in full uniform as well as a couple photos of their eagle project in email to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com for use at the eagle banquet and possible use in council and district publicity items. Use “Eagle Photos” for the subject and include your name, district (Indian Prairie) and unit number in the body of the email.
