NO. R-11.  House concurrent resolution congratulating Matthew D. Baldwin of Boy Scout Troop 205 in Sharon upon earning the rank of Eagle Scout.

(H.C.R.2)

Offered by:  Representative Adams of Hartland and Senator Campbell of Windsor County, Senator Dunne of Windsor County and Senator Welch of Windsor County.

     Whereas, scouting is a movement that challenges, inspires, and guides young people toward high achievements and high values as expressed in the Scout oath, law, motto, and slogan, and

     Whereas, Eagle is the highest rank in Boy Scouting, and requires mastery of difficult challenges in diverse areas, and

     Whereas to become an Eagle Scout requires demonstration of good character and community service, and

     Whereas, only a minority of scouts ever achieves this special accomplishment, and

     Whereas, Matthew Baldwin of Sharon has demonstrated a special commitment to the Boy Scouts, and has worked with great diligence to successfully complete the requirements for the rank of Eagle, and

Whereas, for his Eagle community service project, Matthew raised funds for, and then supervised the construction of, six picnic tables located at different sites in the town of Sharon, and

     Whereas, at a recently‑held Eagle court of honor, Matthew was formally inducted into this special fraternity of extraordinary Boy Scouts, now therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:

     That the General Assembly congratulates Matthew D. Baldwin on attaining the rank of Eagle Scout, and be it further

     Resolved:  That the Secretary of State be directed to send a copy of this resolution to Matthew Baldwin in Sharon.
