Boy Scout Troop 1760 in Gaithersburg, Maryland, will honor the advancement of four Scouts to the rank of Eagle Scout at a ceremony on April 20 at the First Baptist Church of Gaithersburg, 200 West Diamond Ave.  Noah Justin Blaker, Clayton Alexander Palmer, Alexander Edwin Palmrose and Vincent James Romano have achieved the Eagle Scout rank for their Boy Scout honors, meritorious badges, and planning, developing, and providing leadership in a service project that benefited their community.  Only four percent of Scouts attain Eagle Scout, the highest rank of the Boy Scouts of America.  Boy Scout Troop 1760 is proud of these young men and their significant accomplishments.

  1. Noah Justin Blaker, a junior at Poolesville High School in Poolesville, Maryland, was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout on January 25, 2013, having earned 31 merit badges and completing his Eagle Scout service project, which included the design and construction of a 340 foot stone path around the exterior of Congregation B’nai Tzedek in Potomac, Maryland.  Noah solicited several thousand dollars in contributions for the materials and supplies and arranged for 25-30 volunteers to remove the existing sod and to install geo-textile fabric, steel edging, and 40,000 pounds of stone dust.  The path provides access from the building walkway to a creek behind the place of worship to perform outside prayer services.
  2. Clayton Alexander Palmer, a senior at Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, Maryland, was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout on January 25, 2013, having earned 32 merit badges and completing his service project, which included recruiting volunteers, overseeing and participating in the removal of protective plastic sleeves from seedling trees that were planted as part of a state forestation initiative at Patuxent River State Park in Woodbine, Maryland.  The labor was fairly straightforward but quite involved, as it required working at times on steep slopes and through dense overgrowth.  The project was successfully completed on time and on budget.
  3. Alexander Edwin Palmrose, a senior at Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, Maryland, was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout on December 7, 2012, having earned 24 merit badges and completing his service project, which included recruiting volunteers to work with him at the Washington Canoe Club, located below Georgetown on the Potomac River.  Alexander and the volunteers cleared the Club’s fence line of weeds, vines, and debris, then placed several cubic yards of gravel at the base of the fence line.  This helped the Washington Canoe Club to launch their efforts to restore the 108 year-old “National Register of Historic Places” clubhouse facility.  The Washington Canoe Club is presently designated a “Center of Excellence” by the United States Canoe and Kayak Team (US CKT), the national governing body for the sport of Olympic flat water racing.  Olympians and Olympic hopefuls train at the club.
  4. Vincent James Romano, a senior at Northwest High School in Germantown, Maryland, was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout on February 22, 2013, having earned 27 merit badges and completing his service project, which included recruiting volunteers, overseeing and participating in the removal of protective plastic sleeves from seedling trees that were planted as part of a state forestation initiative on the Greenway Trail in Darnestown, Maryland.  The labor was fairly straightforward but quite involved, as it required working at times on steep slopes and through dense overgrowth.  The project was successfully completed on time and on budget.

A Court of Honor ceremony will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2013, at the First Baptist Church of Gaithersburg, in Gaithersburg, Maryland, to award these four young men with their Eagle Badge.
