Roger Joseph Sawyer III of Ticonderoga Boy Scout Troop 72 was presented with an American Flag, an Elks pin and a plaque by Jeffery Nowc, Exalted Ruler of the Ticonderoga Elks Lodge #1494, during an Eagle Scout Court of Honor. The plaque read: The Ticonderoga Elks Lodge # 1494, The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, a Fraternal Organization, takes pride in presenting to you an American Flag because you have demonstrated that you daily practice the teaching of democracy. We are proud to call you our fellow citizen because you have worked hard to prove that you believe in the United States as one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all. As the Red, White and Blue colors on the cloth blend to make a beautiful flag so the skills you mastered have blended together to make you an outstanding citizen.
