The SPL, Austin, lead the color guard in the opening ceremony with a commanding voice. The color guard consisted of scouts from the troop and the pack. One of the first awards given was for the Eagle Scout of the Year, and it was given to our own Andres! Out of 54 Eagle Scouts in the district Andreas won the award for his involvement in the troop after becoming an Eagle. Even after turning eighteen, he became a leader in the troop and spent a week at summer camp as an adult. He also, after leaving for college, found a local Cub Scout pack to lend a hand. Troop 26 has been very fortunate to have three Eagle Scouts win this award in recent years.
The troop has earned the Commissioner Award for 2010. This award shows that Troop 26 is a well rounded troop. Only a few other troops in the district received this award.
Last but not least, the O’Donnell’s were recognized by the district for their service to Scouting.
