Troop 16’s newest Eagle Scouts, Allen Ellis and Trevor Perry, recently took part in the Yankee Clipper Council’s annual Eagle Recognition Banquet.

Both young men organized, managed and worked on significant community projects as part of their Eagle requirements.

Allen compiled a computerized database of veterans’ graves in Danvers and, with the help of his family, friends and fellow scouts, placed American flags on veterans’ graves at Walnut Grove and St. Mary of the Annunciation Cemeteries. For photos of his Eagle project, please click here.

Allen is the son of Robb and Kristen Ellis. His Eagle Court of Honor was held on June 16, 2012, at St. John’s Prep.

Trevor carried out a project to widen and improve a steep path connecting the the Northshore Unitarian Universalist Church with the Danvers Rail Trail. With family, friends and fellow scouts, Trevor lined the path with wood chips, placed logs on the sides and installed a hand rail along the steepest section.

Trevor is the son of Gregg and Marilyn Perry. His Eagle Court of Honor was held on March 9, 2013, at the Maple Street Church, which is Troop 16’s chartering organization.
