Earns Eagle Scout rank
Alexander McNamara, son of Jeff and Tammy McNamara, recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout. He is a member of Boy Scout Troop 168, sponsored by the Hudson Rod and Gun Club.
For his Eagle Scout project, he made an Eagle’s nest lookout on the Natural Playground Trail at the Willow River State Park, which is under development and will have a number of different natural play activities for kids when finished. Other parts of the trail will include a rope bridge, pioneer fort, gnome homes, and several climbing areas.
The rank of Eagle Scout is the highest rank a Boy Scout can earn. McNamara started out in the Boy Scout program in first grade as a Tiger Cub,and continued through Cub Scouting to achieve the highest award, the Arrow of Light in fifth grade. He then transitioned to Boy Scouting.
