Two Earn Eagle Scout Awards

Justin Carbaugh Justin Carbaugh Justin Carbaugh received his Eagle Scout award on August 15, 2009, at Needmore Firehall.

Justin is working well with his fellow Needmore Scout Troop 45 to make sure they will receive this award some day also.

He was under the leadership of Stuart Fletcher. Scoutmaster Fletcher says it takes a lot of time, effort and work to receive all merit badges and work your way from Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life Scout and Eagle. It is not easy to accomplish. You need to go back and review things they do, check all merit badges and make sure all badges are required and then complete an Eagle project.

Justin received awards from the following: Rep. Dick Hess, Sen. John Eichelberger, Rep. Bill Shuster, VFW, Fulton County commissioners and Hagerstown Professional Firefighters.

Justin wishes to thank everyone who made this possible. Special thanks go to Don Snyder, Mike Snyder, Stuart Fletcher, fellow Scouts and family.
