Two scouts from Boy Scout Troop 542 in Maple Glen re­cently re­ceived the Ea­gle Scout Award, the high­est rank attainable in the Boy Scout pro­gram of the Boy Scouts of Amer­ica. David G. Cai and Luke A. Vi­olante were hon­ored at a Court of Honor cer­e­mony at Sup­plee Pres­by­te­rian Church, where the troop is based.

For his Ea­gle project, Cai lead a team of 33 youth and adult vol­un­teers in the plant­ing of 175 trees pro­tected by anti-deer fenc­ing at Rose Val­ley Pre­serve, a park in Up­per Dublin Town­ship. The project took more than 180 vol­un­teer hours.

For his Ea­gle project, Vi­olante led 28 youth and adult vol­un­teers in the beau­ti­fi­ca­tion of an out­door walk­ing path at Gwynedd Es­tates re­tire­ment com­mu­nity. The trail was lined with gravel to make the path safer and eas­ier to fol­low and deer­re­sis­tant flow­ers were planted to beau­tify the area.
