Boy Scout Courts of Honor are special events. Achieving Eagle Scout — and sharing the day with fellow troop members, leaders, family and friends — is a moment any Scout will always remember.
But last Sunday’s Court of Honor at Christ & Holy Trinity Church was extra special.
To open the ceremony — at which Westport’s Troop 100 feted Aaron Samuels, Cole Moyer and John Foley — 3 Staples Orphenians sang the national anthem.
A blog for adult Scout leaders callled it “musical gold that’ll make you proud to be a Scout or Scouter, and proud to be an American.”
Those weren’t just 3 random juniors plucked off the stage. All are connected with Troop 100. On the left is former Scout Keanan Pucci; on the right is Life Scout Wellington Baumann.
And there in the middle is Aaron Samuels — singing before becoming an Eagle Scout, on a day no one there will ever forget.
