New Eagle scouts honored

The American Legion in Vergennes hosted Troop 539s Boy Scouts Eagle Court of Honor Nov. 17. Eagle projects must be approved by the regional BSA council, documented and include at least 100 hours of combined work by the Eagle candidate, the troop, families and friends. At the Nov. 17 ceremony, 125 family and friends were in attendance from as far away as Florida and California. In addition to recognizing new scouts, 31 prior Vergennes-area Eagle scouts were honored. Three new Addison County Eagle scouts were recognized during the court of honor ceremony: John Slocum, age 16, son of Paul and Priscilla Slocum of Middlebury, built a wheelchair access ramp, under U.S. Forest Service supervision, at the Blueberry Management Area in Goshen; Kyle Pixley, age 17, of Vergennes cleared a wooded locale for a picnic site at the Victory Baptist Church; Ben Osicky, age 18, sone of Tommy Lavalette of Ferrisburgh, built an information kiosk at the Salisbury Fish Hatchery located off Route 52.
