Highest Achievement

Becoming an Eagle Scout is the highest achievement rank in Boy Scouting and only about seven percent of all Scouts ever reach this level. On Thursday evening, April 24 the Fairfield Bay Lions Club will host the Eagle Court of Honor for Dylan Ruple of Boy Scout Troop 401 here in Fairfield Bay. As the Charter Organization for Troop 401, the Fairfield Bay Lions are proud for Dylan and his family and of the Scout Master Craig Fisher and the other adult leaders and troop members who have assisted Dylan in achieving this honor. To reach this level a Scout must progress through the ranks from Tenderfoot to Life and finally, after meeting the other requirements, become an Eagle. Other requirements include earning 21 merit badges in such areas as First Aid, Citizenship and Community, Communications, Emergency Preparedness or Life Saving and Camping. The candidate must also serve six months in a troop leadership position, plan, develop and give leadership to a service project for any religious organization or any school or community. Finally, the individual must complete the Eagle Scout board of review.
The Fairfield Bay Lions would like to invite all members to attend this meeting and ceremony as well as any individuals who achieved the rank of Eagle Scout who would like to share this evening with Dylan and his family and friends. Dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. and the ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. There will be no featured speaker, as this meeting is to give special recognition to this achievement. BINGO has returned to the Lions Den on Saturday nights. Door will open at 5:30 p.m. with a black out game with a $1,000 prize. Please come and join us for BINGO and help us raise funds to support our charitable efforts in the sight and vision program.
