Marcus Rowland’s Eagle Project

His Eagle Scout project was a game, but Marcus Rowland isn’t playing around. At 16 years of age, the Cohasset High School sophomore was the youngest member of Troop 28 to make the Eagle Scout rank in at least a decade.

Rowland, in the spirit of Osgood School’s former principal Bob LeCount, created an eight-by-eight foot giant chess board for the elementary school’s playground, complete with giant figurines.

Quentin Hill’s Eagle Project

Hill rounded out his Eagle qualifications by making improvements to the outdoor classroom at Osgood School. He added three benches and cleared the overgrown trail so that teachers could start taking advantage of the disused space again.

“When I was there, we would occasionally use that space,” Hill remembered. “The space was there, but it wasn’t being used. The project gave that area a better use.”

For his project, Bryan provided the final piece to a walking trail puzzle, tying together three other Eagle Scout projects at the Conservation Trust’s George H. Ingram Memorial Park, located off the eastern leg of Beechwood Street.

By clearing this final stretch of trail and building two walkways over marshy areas, Bryan turned the trails of Ingram Park into a complete walking loop. Lowe’s donated the lumber for the two boardwalks. Bryan also created a map to display at a kiosk by the entry.

Scouting For Food Campaign

scouting for food

Each year the Boy Scouts of America conduct a nationwide “Scouting for Food” campaign to help collect food for local food pantries.  Every scout, from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts and Venture or Varsity Scouts, is encouraged to help in this very worthwhile service project. 

At the Troop meeting, each scout received a packet of 10 door hangers that can be handed out to friends and neighbors during the week of November 5th.  The door hangers ask for food donations that our scouts will pick up the following Saturday, November 12th.  More packets will be available at the meeting this week. 

Each scout should then bring those bags of donated food to the Troop Meeting on November 17th, and parent volunteers will deliver our donations directly to the Cohasset Food Pantry, in time for Thanksgiving.
