East Hampton Troop 298 held its Court of Honor this past Thursday at the American Legion Post #419 in Amagansett, and several scouts earned new ranks.
Springs School students Andrew Wilson, Matthew Lester, and Travis Santiago ranked to Star Scout, according to Andrew's mother Mary McPartland.
For his Star Scout service project, Andrew designed, constructed and donated three bat houses to the Springs School to help eat up to 1,000 mosquitos a day. He learned how to make bat houses while earning his woodworking merit badge.
During the ceremony, John Claflin and Taky Dimopoulis also earned a new rank — Tenderfoot.
Check out the photos some of their parents sent in. Congratulations to all.
