The Naperville Public Works Department wants you to adopt a drain. They’ve started a volunteer program throughout town inviting residents and businesses to commit to taking on the task of keeping nearby drains free of debris. Clogged storm drains are one of the major causes of roadway flooding in Naperville, and the city spends over a million dollars each year on maintenance, inspections and repairs of the nearly 56,000 drains around town. If you’d like to sign up for the Adopt-A-Drain program, just head to the city’s website where you can choose a drain from the interactive map. http://www.naperville.il.us/residents/adopt-a-drain-program (For the team name, you can use your unit name such as Troop 101 or Pack 887. Also, you can name your drain and choose your unit name so others can see that too.)

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.
