Scouting News: Troop 30 Scouts receive Eagle honors

Troop 30’s new Eagle Scouts include, from left, Trip Truman, James Doherty, McClane Howland, Jack Gordon, Jake Lillie, Axel Michaud and Mitchell Mertz.

Seven Boy Scouts from Troop 30 in Los Altos recently received Eagle Scout honors at a Court of Honor ceremony at Christ Episcopal Church of Los Altos, where the troop meets.

To become an Eagle Scout, Scouts must plan and execute a service project.

The Eagle Scouts and their projects:

• James Doherty installed slope erosion measures in a steep area on the Christ Episcopal Church church grounds, including irrigation and planting ivy to stabilize the slopes.

• Jack Gordon relandscaped an unused large plant bed at Christ Episcopal, developing an irrigation plan and planting new drought-tolerant plants.

• McClane Howland completed several improvements at the Cedar Creek Care Facility for Alzheimer’s in Los Gatos, including installing planter boxes and a chalkboard and refurbishing an aviary housing doves.

• Jake Lillie designed, built and installed two scorekeeper tables and benches for Los Altos-Mountain View PONY Baseball on the fields at Blach Intermediate and Covington schools.

• Mitchell Mertz installed a 230-foot-long split-rail fence at Redwood Grove in Los Altos. The fence protects a conservation area that has been replanted with native California plants.

• Axel Michaud designed and constructed an outdoor spiritual area at Los Altos Lutheran Church. The project consisted of building a garden in the center, constructing a flagstone path lining the garden and installing two benches.

• Trip Truman led the construction of an Argentine barbecue grill at Christ Episcopal Church. The grill offers four times the grilling area previously available, as well as additional countertop workspace.
