Troop 13 – Boy Scouts of America would like to congratulate Deep River resident Bobby Neil Hamblett for earning the rank of Eagle Scout. An Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held for Bobby on August 15, 2014 at the Deep River Town Hall Auditorium.
To become an Eagle Scout, Bobby earned 28 merit badges and advanced through the seven scout ranks by learning Scout and Life skills while simultaneously providing leadership to his Troop and service to his community. One of the final requirements for the Eagle Rank is to show leadership in and complete a service project that benefits the boy’s community, school, or religious institution.
Bobby showed leadership over others by developing and implementing a plan to clear and grade an existing aged tree stump and sod area to replace it with a commemorative live pin oak and a newly laid handicapped accessible brick patio with two reflecting benches at the entrance to the Deep River Elementary School. To complete this project Bobby worked with various municipal agencies, attended meetings with the Deep River Board of Selectmen, secured donations for supplies and designed and oversaw volunteers through the planning and construction period. This project is a benefit to the Deep River Elementary School staff and students and all Deep River residents and their guests visiting the school grounds.
