Troop 193 congratulates two of our Boy Scouts who have attained the rank of Eagle Scout this year, the 100th Anniversary of the Eagle Scout Award (see details below): 
Logan W. earned the rank of Eagle Scout in March and held his special Court of Honor in May.  His project involved planning and constructing a stone Prayer Labyrinth on the West side of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church with the help of family, church congregation and members of Troop 193. 
Tyler W. earned the rank of Eagle Scout in June and has set his Court of Honor for later this summer.  His project involved planning and with the help of members of Troop 193, taking an old storage closest in the basement of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church and cleaning it up with fresh paint and constructing wood shelving for the use of the church’s Preschool and also PADS programs.
Both projects really turned out great and allowed each scout to demonstrate his ability to plan and carry out a worthy project while leading others.
