The latest in a very long line of young men of Troop 41, co-sponsored by SRC,was installed as an Eagle Scout at a Court of Honor ceremony on Sunday at the Rensselaer Elks Lodge in East Greenbush.
Leonardo Gonzales, whose name will be added to the Eagle Plaque on display at Columbia High School, was the honoree. In addition to the 21 merit badges required to attain the Eagle rank, a special work project is mandatory. In Leonardo’s case, it was creation of a Viking Gym at the Schodack Town Park.
The gym is a rustic outdoor structure available to the public. (Photos here.) The project was completed in conjunction with Ron Annis and several other SRC Rotarians. Ron and Jim Leyhane offered remarks on the project as part of the Court of Honor ceremony.
