A New Eagle Has Soared
April 3, 2004

On Saturday April 3, a large gathering of family and scouts gathered to witness the awarding to Andy DeGregorio of Scouting’s highest achievement – the rank of Eagle Scout. The ceremony began at 11:00 a.m. and was held at the Cabana Club. Besides his family and friends, Andy had in attendance his first Cub Scout leader, Webelos leader, Boy Scout leaders, as well as many other supportive people who helped him along the way.

The fun, entertaining ceremony included highlights from Andy’s long, association with scouting, both in pictures and stories. We all were able to experience the “tragedy” of his Skyline to the Sea camp-out that was demonstrated in a skit. Following the ceremony, all in attendance were treated to lunch and a great Dutch oven delicacy – peach cobbler.

What an inspiration it is to have Andy in this troop! He best sums up his experiences with his quote: “I’ve learned that even though things do not always turn out quite as planned, it can still be a great journey”.
