‘Best friends’ earn Eagle Scout honors

By From page B9 | April 29, 2011

Jeremy Pare and Keegan Bowers met as Cub Scouts in Pack 460 and then soon became best friends.

They continued their friendship throughout scouting and music. They graduated from Union Mine High School last May. Both became Eagle Scouts last year one month apart from each other while in Troop 460 in Pleasant Valley under the guidance and leadership of Marty Feil Scoutmaster. They have had many backpack trips into the back country and a High Adventure Trip to Yellowstone.

Bowers’ Eagle Project was the “Jake Reed Service Project” named after his grandfather, who has been stricken with Multiple Sclerosis. He assisted four different families that were inflicted with Multiple Sclerosis in our community with deck rebuilding, cleaning garages, walkways, and debris removal. He was accepted to U.C Santa Cruz and is pursuing a field in medicine.

Pare’s project was to construct a 120′ cedar split rail fence with gates and safe pathway for the Camino Search and Rescue lodge. Pare is attending Folsom Lake College and pursuing a field in business.

Both young men have worked for Camp Marin Sierra for the last few years as Life guards and Merit badge Counselors. They also both share their passion for playing music. Both men are fine guitarist.

An Eagle Court of Honor was held at the Pleasant Valley Grange around the time of their high school graduation.

The young men thank Marty Feil, Mark Pare, John Tillitson and John Peklar and many parents for their assistance and leadership in developing these two fine young men.
