Congratulations to Eagle Scout Chris LaMarche

Chris LaMarche passed his Eagle Board of Review at the Great Lakes Centennial Jamboree. Chris had the most ambitious Eagle Scout project in my memory. He is a diver and his project was to replace the bouys on a wreck in Lake Michigan. He coordinated with the Coast Guard to bring in the cutter Mackinaw to actually install the new bouy and the 1 ton sinker he fabricated. He also had to do extensive work with the Department of Environmental Quality and Corps of Engineers for permits. Chris is shown with Jim Simmons, formerly a Scouter in Sault Ste Marie.

Didn't know exactly what Chris' project was. I'm impressed.
It's also great to see "Sailor Bear" Simmons again. I was thinking about him the other day, wondering how he has been. It looks like he's doing great, and still helping Scouts!
