 Melrose Boy Scout Troop 68
Eagle Scout Hall Of Fame

    The Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable by a Boy Scout in America. The road which leads toward this rank is long and hard. There may be road blocks and obstacles that try to halt the completion of the rank. Time may run short. But the those who possess strong will and desire will complete the journey and prove they are worthy of the Eagle Rank.
    Melrose Troop 68 has several Scouts who have earned this distinction. This page is dedicated to one of them, his accomplishments, and to all Eagle Scouts from across the country.

Eagle Scout John Rosner

    John Rosner became a Boy Scout when he graduated into the troop from his Webelos Den in April, 1985. He was quite active in the troop, attended numerous weekend camps and summer camps. In 1989 he attended Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. He was also active in the Order of the Arrow.
     John earned his Eagle Rank in February, 1992. His Eagle Court of Honor was held on May 5, 1992 at the Melrose City Center meeting rooms. The court of honor had a special guest in attendance. John Johnson, who was Melrose's first Eagle Scout (earned in the 1960's), gave a brief talk during the ceremony.
