Eagle's Nest

Boy Scout Troop 25 was founded in 2005 with the Chartered Organization Elim Luteran Church. Not only do we honor these boys on a plaque ath the Church, but also here. We are extremely proud of all the young men that have attained the Eagle Scout Rank granted by Boy Scouts of America.
 
Eagle is the highest rank a boy can acheive in Boy Scouts of America and represents a significant acheivement, as well as, its most familiar icons. Men who have earned this rank count is among their most treasured possessions. Hence the saying, "Once an Eagle Scout, Always an Eagle Scout". For those whom have came with inches, they still remember what they didn't complete.
 
Americans from all walks of life know that being an Eagle Scout is an Honor held greatly, even if they don't know what the badge actually means or not even involved in Boy Scouts of America. This award goes beyond the badge that you are awarded. This is a state of being, you are an Eagle Scout, never were. You may have earned this award as a youth, but you continue to reearn this rank every day as a man.
 
"So in our work indeed, in any work of life we should look forward, well forward, with high aims and hope; look around with joy and goodwill; look back with thankfulness at what has been accomplished and then press on with renewed vigor, with helpful initiative, and with broadened outlook, towards the highest goal, not forgetting to give a helping hand to others as we go. But when you look - look WIDE; and even when you think you are looking wide - LOOK WIDER STILL." - Lord Baden-Powell
