Not quite four years ago, I began some trips to St. Vincent Cemetery, an old and abandoned burying ground largely surrounded by the Clifton Park Golf Course in Northeast Baltimore. In that summer of 2010, a small group of descendants of those buried there initiated a campaign to get the weeds and invasive trees cut down - and to win respect for the spot where nearly 3,700 people rest. Last fall, a 15-year-old Dulaney High School sophomore from Lutherville, John Patrick Nolan III, stepped up. As his Eagle Scout project, he decided to improve the cemetery's condition.

Nick Conroy, an Eagle Scout candidate from Troop 109, is constructing a prayer garden at the Solid Rock Baptist Church on Hammonds Ferry Road as his Eagle project. The garden will be open to the public. The sophomore at Lansdowne High School started his project at age 14 after seeing other Scouts in his troop scramble to get their projects done before the deadline of their 18th birthday. He said he could have started his Eagle project sooner, but he postponed it to help older Scouts finish their projects before the deadline.

The 28-year-old concedes that his fiancee is putting a little heat on him these days. "I do get quite the pressure from ... being gone all the time," Neault said with a chuckle.
