Welcome to the Troop 4 Eagle Scout Page
On this page, the Troop provides a summary of all the service projects led by our Eagle Scouts over the years. Recently, this page was enhanced to include photographs and links to the Eagle Scout biography sheets presented at the Court of Honor. Unfortunately, we are missing photos/biographies for some Eagles from our early years, and some of our photos were taken years after the project was completed. Photos that include the Eagle Scout ‘in action’ would be great additions to this web page. If you have a copy of a missing Court of Honor biography sheet, or better photos of an Eagle Scout Service Project, please email to Phil Bedard at firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail to 22 Harmony Trail, Hopedale MA 01747. Any hard copy photos or biographies will be promptly returned. Your help in this matter will close the gaps and provide a more complete history of our Troop 4 Eagle Scout accomplishments. Thank you. (p.s. kudos to Brandon Dulak for starting this enhancement project; great idea!)
