Eagle COH Thank You

Sabrina and I would like to thank everyone in our Troop 29 family for helping to make the Eagle Court of Honor a truly memorable experience for our family. We are very proud of Ethan and John for their outstanding accomplishments. The past ten years have been a time of endurance and hard work for us as parents too. But being at the Eagle Court of Honor and seeing the boys receive their medals was a great reward for persevering with Ethan during his long journey from Wolf Cub to Eagle Scout. Our family was so happy to be part of such a wonderful ceremony and reception.

Stephen and Sabrina Szilniczky
