Eagle Rank Badge And Medal

Peter Brown, Eagle Scout #356 for Troop 12

Peter Brown passed his Eagle Board of Review April 3rd, to become Troop 12’s 356th Eagle Scout.

For his Eagle Project, Peter collected unused glasses to be distributed to children in Afghanistan. This consisted of  building a donation box for St James Church (which they get to keep!) for parishioner donations in addition to distributing flyers around town with other troop members and collecting otheir unused glasses. In total he collected 225 pairs of glasses, who knew there were so many spare glasses laying unused in our drawers?

With a lensometer, Peter measured the prescriptions of all 450 lenses of the donated glasses and carefully catalogued them all, so the children could match them with their prescriptions in Afghanistan. They were then packed to his project sponsor to be distributed to those needy kids half way across the world.
