Rancho Murieta's newest Eagle Scouts are, from left, Robert Meyer, Blake Hurdle, Matt Kalmanson and Drew Moore. The Troop 633 Scouts were honored at the Eagle Court of Honor ceremony Sunday afternoon at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church's social hall, attended by about 175 people. Bagpiper Steve McKinney played "America the Beautiful" to user in the solemn ceremony honoring the scouts, their parents, mentors, troop leader Mori Graf and former troop leader David Scharlach.
After, the newly minted Eagles visited the prayer garden Matt Kalmanson created as his Eagle Scout project. For their projects, Blake Hurdle installed nature markers at Lake Calero, Robert Meyer built a shade structure at historic Sloughhouse Pioneer Cemetery, and Drew Moore constructed a double kennel for the Community Services District Security Department. A picnic celebration at Lake Clementia, attended by family, friends and fellow Eagle Scouts, capped the memorable day.
