Matthew Hammer and Joshua Seidenberger of Boy Scout Troop 535 in Loganville were celebrated recently in an Eagle Scout Court of Honor held on Saturday, January 11 at American Legion Post 233 in Loganville. Fellow scouts, family, friends and others gathered to celebrate this significant milestone in the young men’s passage through the scouting experience.
In order to earn their Eagle, Scouts must complete a service project for a church, school, or community. An Eagle project often takes up to 100 hours or more and requires the assistance of other scouts to complete. Matthew Hammer designed and built a library box outside Victory Baptist Church in Loganville to facilitate free book exchanges. He also installed a light on the church flagpole so the American flag can be flown continuously. For his Eagle, Joshua Seidenberger built 8 new benches and renovated 15 benches, and landscaped an area near the church to create an outdoor classroom.
