Drew Luniewski is new Eagle Scout

Boy Scout Troop 29’s Drew R. Luniewski recently earned the highest rank in scouting – that of Eagle Scout. Drew chose to give back to the Neshaminy High School Marching Band and their director Michael Lipton for his Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project.

Drew led a team of volunteers to complete an observation deck to replace the current wooden one which has become unsafe for use by the director and band members. He raised funds for the project by holding a carwash and online fundraising page. 84 Lumber in Fairless Hills made a generous donation of composite material which helped make the project a reality.

Along his trail to Eagle, Drew served his troop in the roles of Assistant Patrol Leader and Patrol Leader. He is an Ordeal member of the Order of the Arrow Ajapeu Lodge.

Jackie Allen earns highest Girl Scout honor

by Christine Wolkin

Earning your Silver Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout can achieve, is no easy feat, but that’s exactly what Jackie Allen of Troop #2067 in Langhorne accomplished this spring by creating a “Little Free Library” outside of Albert Schweitzer Elementary School.

The Silver Award is typically pursued by Cadette Girl Scouts in their senior year of high school who are looking for a chance to show that they are an organized and determined leader dedicated to improving their local community. The average project requires a total of 50 hours of planning, developing, and execution; has to benefit a group or community outside of Girl Scouts; and must be able to continue after the scout’s involvement.

There are six steps a Girl Scout must take in order to earn the Silver Award.
