MARYSVILLE – Three local young men will be recognized with their Eagle Scout awards Oct. 27.

RJ Ustaris’ project comprised of three parts, all in support of the Marysville Food Bank. He held a food drive, collecting over 900 pounds of food. With the assistance of Don St. Mary of True North Security Solutions, RJ helped to install two security cameras around the Food Bank. With the assistance of Andy Eccleshall, a local muralist, RJ and his volunteers completed a mural along the front of the Food for Thought storage container (located behind the Food Bank). RJ is a sophomore at Grace Academy.

Kevin Mulvaney and his volunteers helped to rebuild the park sign of the Lake Stevens Disc Golf Course. The sign had deteriorated and had been struck by a vehicle. The original sign was sanded, painted and reinstalled with the addition of a raised flower bed. Kevin also is a sophomore at Grace Academy.

And Colton Johnson and his volunteers helped to build and install eight bat houses located at park grounds of the Stillaguamish Valley Historical Museum in Arlington

They belong to Troop 180, chartered by the Knights of Columbus #7683 and St. Mary Catholic Church. Each candidate must earn 21 merit badges and complete a community, church, or synagogue-related service project to earn Eagle Scout. Only about five percent of all Boy Scouts earn the honor.
