Three Eagle Scouts pinned from Troop 124

Three scouts from Boy Scout Troop 124 earned the rank of Eagle Scout at separate Courts of Honor held this past month in Ada.

Kamron Wilkerson is the grandson of Carl and Bonnie Wilkerson. Aaron Spar is the son of Donald and Amy Spar. Dexter Woods III is the son of Dexter and Melanie Caw Woods. Scoutmaster Donald Spar and Assistant Scoutmaster Thomas Lehman presented the Eagle pins to the young men.

Spar’s Eagle project was the taking down and rebuilding of the World War I and World War II monument at Ada’s War Memorial Stadium. The bronze plaque was cleaned and refinished, the monument was cleaned and reset, and then the area around the monument was landscaped under his direction by the scouts and leaders of Troop 124.

Woods' Eagle project was constructing a movable prayer labyrinth for the First United Methodist Church in Ada. Worshippers were able to use it this year during the Lenten season. The labyrinth is used as spiritual guide for meditation, prayer and reflection. The church will use it over and over for special times in the life of the church.

Kamron designed and organized the building of new, easily cleanable bird houses for the Woodlawn and St. Paul’s Methodist Church cemeteries south and west of Ada. The scouts and leaders helped build each house out of cedar, remove the old houses, and set up the new ones. As of this date the houses have reached full occupancy. The project was done for the Liberty Township Trustees.
