Anand completes Eagle Scout project

Submitted By Nelson Kirk

On April 14 and 15, 2012 at Casa Verde Park, Aneel Raj Anand from Boy Scouts of America Troop 20 completed his Eagle Scout Project. Aneel and his crew of volunteers and supportive parents planted over 60 flowering trees, 140 flowering shrubs, installed a park bench, BBQ and spread over 60 cubic yards of mulch. Aneel's hard work will be enjoyed by park visitors and local residents for many years to come. Aneel was assisted by Public Works employees William Bontadelli and Craig Cutting.

Eagle Scout is the highest attainable rank in Boy Scouting and requires years of dedication and hard work. Scouts must demonstrate through personal skills, leadership and commitment to their community, exceptional aptitude, motivation and perseverance and must earn 21 merit badges and complete a leadership project before achieving the Eagle rank. Less than five percent of Boy Scouts become Eagle Scouts.

For over a century, Scouting has offered unique opportunities to young men for spiritual, mental and physical growth. Generations of scouts have been beneficiaries of the camaraderie and skills associated with prescribed levels of achievement. At the pinnacle of Boy Scout accomplishments is the rank of Eagle Scout. This is the highest rank in Scouting, and is a lifelong title, so, "Once an Eagle, always an Eagle."
