Three members of Bedford Boy Scout Troop 114, earned scouting’s highest honor when they became Eagle Scouts on August 21, 2021.
Timothy O. Bennett, Antranig S. Douglas, and Joshua J. Young were honored by family, friends, and dignitaries at the ceremony held in the sanctuary at First Parish on the Common. Bennett’s Eagle project created homes for scores of solo bees, crucial pollinators in the town’s natural habitat; Douglas’s project involved clearing a pond and its shoreline in Plymouth; and Young launched an online fire safety program for Bedford.
The Eagle Oath
I reaffirm my allegiance to the three promises of the Scout Oath. I thoughtfully recognize and take upon myself the obligations and responsibilities of an Eagle Scout. On my honor, I will do my best to make my training an example and my status and my influence count strongly for better Scouting and for better citizenship in my troop, in my community, and in my contacts with other people. To this I pledge my sacred honor.”
In addition to family, friends, and troop members special guests included Larry Murphy, Senior Deacon of Troop 114’s charter organization, the F.W.Thompson Masonic Lodge; State Representative Ken Gordon; and Margot Fleischman, Chair of the Bedford Select Board.
