As part of the requirements for Eagle Scout, Klay developed and carried out a community service project which consisted of doing the landscaping and building and installing benches in Mary’s Park, a new park the is located in the Town of Nokomis where Klay lives. It was his responsibility to design the plan, arrange the materials and along with the help of other scouts and leaders to complete the project.

Klay has been a member of the troop for seven years and has attended Summer camp with the troop at Camp Tesomas each year. He has also gone on six High Adventure trips including several canoe trips to the Boundary waters, Backpacking Isle Royal, and Pictured Rocks.

Congratulations. The Eagle Scout award involves a great deal of work and dedication.

Congratulations Klay!

The Eagle Scout legacy of Tomahawk Troop 548 is admirable.
