A new Eagle
For his Eagle Scout project, Brice Howard (above, 2nd from left) built a raised-deck platform with benches to be used as a meeting area at Camp Ithiel in Gotha. He said the project took 140 man-hours and approximately $1,800, which was raised through carwashes at the Subway restaurant on Maguire Road in Ocoee. With him are Windermere Mayor Gary Bruhn (2nd from right) and his parents, Rhonda and Brent Howard. The scout, a member of Troop 223 in Windermere, is the grandson of Jerry and Mary Frances Howard.
At right, Howard sits at the deck he built. Howard said he chose Ithiel for his project ‘because I spent a lot of time in middle school going to youth groups at Camp Ithiel and the property, and its owner has been close to my family for many years.’ His Eagle Court of Honor was held May 11.
