Troop 82 celebrates surpassing 100 Eagle Scouts

On Saturday, May 31, at 3 p.m., dozens of Boy Scouts, their families, scout leaders and former scouts will gather at First Church Congregational to celebrate Troop 82 promoting more than 100 Boy Scouts to the rank of Eagle.

Eagle Scout is the highest honor that a Boy Scout can achieve, and it is Scouting’s most sought after achievement. In attaining this honor, the young men of Troop 82 have each earned at least 21 merit badges, served at least six months as scout leaders, and crafted and led a service project for their community, school or religious organization.

Starting with Edward and Charles Pratt in 1928, Troop 82 has seen more than 100 Boy Scouts cross over to Eagle.

‘So proud of our Scouts’

“Just over 100 years ago, the first Scout earned the rank of Eagle,” Scoutmaster Bryan LeClerc said. “We are so proud that our Scouts have enabled Fairfield’s Troop 82 to hit our own milestone — over 100 boys have reached Scouting’s highest honor as they have grown with this Troop.”

Troop 82 started in the 1920s at First Church Congregational in Fairfield, Connecticut, where it meets every Thursday in Kosciolek Hall.
