Joey Rosenbaum earns Eagle Scout status
The town of Oakland recognized Eagle Scout candidate Joey Rosenbaum at a recent Town Commission meeting for his construction of side-by-side xylophones at the Oakland Presbyterian VPK playground.
He used metal tubes, which he tuned using an iPhone app to help determine the length of each pipe. For the mallets he used inline skate wheels and attached them to the instrument frame.
The national average for producing Eagle Scouts is 7%, and 25% of Troop 145’s members have met the Eagle requirement.
