A welcome for a new Eagle Scout and a new holiday art exhibit


November 29, 1994|By NATALIE HARVEY

Presented by his father, Bruce, Tom Spaulding was honored at Troop 601's Eagle Scout Court of Honor on Nov. 14. His brothers Andrew and Jeff presided at the candle ceremony.

Tom has been a Boy Scout for eight years and earned all of his requisite merit badges before planning his Eagle Scout project, which involved installation of traffic signs throughout the Baltimore National Cemetery in Catonsville.

Past Eagle Scouts, Boy Scouts, family and friends gathered at Stevens Forest Nursery School (his mother has taught there) for the ceremony with his Scoutmaster, Burt Marsh.

Tom's name will be added to the 41 Eagle Scouts' displayed on Troop 601's Eagles' Nest at the Other Barn in Oakland Mills Village.

Tom has been selected as an adult leader for next month's BSA Seabase Camp in the Florida Keys, where participants will learn how to survive on a deserted island.
