Christopher and Dr. Robert Hunt of Poland will be one of three Eagle Scout families honored at the annual Celebration of Scouting Breakfast on March 6.
Christopher Hunt commented: "Scouting was unique in my early years for allowing me the freedom to pursue my personal interests in many interesting and original ways. Scouting opened up a world of interests, hobbies, and pursuits that I would have completely missed if not for my time in Troop 44."
The breakfast begins at 7:15 a.m. and reservations are required by calling or e-mailing Wolf at 330-898-8474 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
