Theodore Wayland, Evan St. Louis Earn Eagle Scout Awards; Celebration Held in Their Honor, Nov. 4

A Court of Honor was held Nov. 4 to celebrate Theodore Wayland (left) and Evan St. Louis’s attainment of Eagle Scout rank.  All are welcome to attend and congratulate the boys on this achievement.

Boy Scout Troop 26 is proud to announce Theodore Wayland, son of Kathryn and Mark Wayland; and Evan St. Louis, son of Mary and Thomas St. Louis, both of Lyme have earned the Eagle Scout Award, the highest advancement rank within the Boy Scouts of America.

Troop 26 hosted an Eagle Court of Honor for St. Louis and Wayland on Sunday, Nov. 4, at 2 p.m. at the Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School Auditorium, 69 Lyme St., Old Lyme. All are welcome to attend the public ceremony and join in congratulating them on their achievement.

Only about six percent of all Boy Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. Each candidate must earn 21 merit badges, demonstrate leadership, commitment to community and successfully complete a significant service project.

Wayland’s Eagle project was to design and install three flag repository boxes for the Old Lyme and Lyme Town Halls and the Lymes’ Senior Center. He utilized carpentry skills, time management and communication skills. His project was the result of a grant awarded from the local Veterans of Foreign Wars.

St. Louis’s Eagle project was to refurbish the bocce courts at the Lymes’ Senior Center. During the project he managed the clearing of trees and brush, repaired and stained the wooden court frames, installed two new spectating benches, and reconditioned the playing surfaces. 

Both boys are juniors at the Lyme-Old Lyme High School, and share a genuine passion for outdoor living, camping, hiking and the communities they call home.
