Seven New Local Eagle Scouts Make Life Better in Orinda
Submitted by Marta Wallace
The seven new Eagle Scouts from Troop 57 created unique projects in and around Orinda.
Boy Scout Troop 57, chartered by St. Mark's United Methodist Church in Orinda, honored seven new Eagle Scouts this past May. Each Eagle Scout must earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, including 12 Eagle-required badges, demonstrate leadership and scout spirit, and perform a service project for the community.

These scouts, all of whom are current or former Miramonte High School students, include Daniel Campbell, Nick Campbell, Dylan Hoff, Aidan Kohr, Sean McFeely, Allan Rosso and James Wallace.

For his Eagle Scout project, Danny posted signs on the nature trail James Wallace created and added a comfortable bench at the top. Nick constructed planter boxes for the preschool at Holy Shepherd Lutheran Church in Orinda.

Dylan created two planting areas near the parking lot for Holy Shepherd.

Aidan created a wheelchair accessible path at the Wagner Ranch Nature Area. Sean created four planter boxes at St Mark's Church and refurbished the watering system so it would serve each. Allan designed, built and installed display cases for both the band and choir programs at Miramonte. James recovered and recreated a nature path he used to hike with his father in Oak Park in Orinda.
