Troop 153 inducts three new Eagles

Boy Scout Troop 153 in Feasterville has three new Eagle Scouts in their aerie. Joseph Oberlander, Robert A. Fisher, and Brandon Rudolph recently earned the highest rank in scouting.

Joseph chose his troop’s chartered organization, Assumption BVM Roman Catholic Church, as the beneficiary of his Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project. Using his carpentry skills, he led a team of volunteers to construct a 25- foot-long wooden coat rack and shelf until for the church. Previously, there was no place to hang coats when the church hosted large functions.

Joseph dedicated the project in the memory of the late Rev. William F. “Father Bill” McGeown. He counts the many friendships he made in 11 years of scouting as the highlight of his trail to Eagle. He attended several summer camps with his troop and served as a Patrol Leader and Historian. Joseph is a Brotherhood member of Order of the Arrow Ajapeu Lodge.

The son of Eugene and Christine Oberlander of Trevose, Joseph is a member of the Bucks County Technical High School’s class of 2016. There, he studied the cabinetmaking and carpentry trades. He has recently taken the Union Apprenticeship Qualifying Test and looks forward to becoming a sponsored apprentice.
