Calling All (Recent) Five Trails District Eagle Scouts and Parents
From Five Trails District Executive Armando Ramirez:
Texas Senator Don Huffines, Texas Senate District 16, would like to recognize the Eagle Scouts in our District for their achievement with a congratulatory letter and a certificate of recognition. If there is anyone who recently earned his Eagle Scout rank and would like to be recognized, please let the office of the Senator know and they will send both documents to you directly. As any new scouts achieve this rank, they would be happy to recognize them as well.
Congratulations Five Trail Eagle Scouts!!

- Calendar (ALL District events plus some Council events, BSA events, and national holidays), or
- Contacts. (District Commissioners, District Committee, and District Units (Crews, Troops, & Packs))
