Andrew Simmons and Matthew Riccio (Troop 5, Dingmans Ferry), Ed Ward, Jeremy Block and Alexander Brown (Troop 76, Shohola).

Several Eagle Scouts from Pike County attended the 2013 Eagle Scout Reunion and Hall of Fame Induction hosted by the Hudson Valley Council on October 3rd at the United States Military Academy at West Point. The scouts were guests of Ed Ward, Chairman of the Hudson Valley Chapter of the National Eagle Scout Association.

During the event, three Eagle Scouts were inducted into the Hudson Valley Council Eagle Scout Hall of Fame. In addition, Brigadier General Michael Meese, U.S. Army (Retired) was presented with the Distinguished Eagle Award for his years of service to scouting and his community.

Ward is a past recipient of this award.

“The Gathering of Eagles really made me realize that I’m part of the scouting equation. Now that scouting has prepared me (for the future), it’s my turn to give back,” said Eagle Scout Jeremy Block from Troop 76 in Shohola.
