Bowling Green High School senior Noah Lanning, a member of Troop 345, recently achieved Eagle rank, the highest advancement for youth involved in Boy Scouts of America.  
A new stage in the youth drama room at St. Mark's Lutheran Church was designed and built under Noah's leadership for his Eagle Service Project.  
"The stage has benefitted St. Mark's in many ways," said Chris Stuberg, director of youth ministries. "Most obviously, it's a place for Sunday school kids to learn about Jesus and explore the Bible through drama, dance, and movement.  
"Having a stage to use heightens the experience and gives what we learn about in Sunday school more of an impact. It's also used by the junior and senior high youth as a place to gather and worship during youth group time, and a place to reflect on what God is doing in our lives and in our world."

An Otsego teenager repaired 20 headstones at the Washington Township Cemetery for his Eagle Scout project.
Ben Thomas received Boy Scouts' highest honor in an April 6 ceremony.
For his project, Ben replaced the concrete bases of 20 headstones, which were leaning.
He removed the headstone from the old base and dug out the old piece of concrete base. He then leveled off the bottom of the hole and made a wooden frame that was the right size for the hole.
He and other volunteers mixed the new concrete at the cemetery and then poured the right amount in each of the holes. After the concrete dried, they took the frames off and slid the headstones back onto the new base.
This project was funded by the Washington Township Trustees.
Ben plans to attend Owens Community College, majoring in a diesel mechanics or farm mechanics program.
