Congratulations to the 55 scouts in Indian Prairie who achieved the rank of eagle in 2015. Their eagle projects contributed over 11000 service hours to the community.
These eagle scouts will be honored with the more than 350 eagle scouts in the Three Fires Council Eagle Class of 2015 at the Gathering of Eagles Banquet on February 19, 2016 at the Sheridan Lisle Hotel (formerly the Wyndham.) The 2015 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: Jack Koberstine, Bill Marineau, Tim Maurer, Dave Rypka, Julie Rypka, and Vinton Trowbridge.
The Indian Prairie Annual District Dinner is moving a couple months earlier and being held on Sunday, March 6th from 5-8pm. The event will be held at the Stonebridge Country Club which is the same location as last year. The program will be similar with some additional recognition and awards too.
