Siloam Post 29 of the American Legion Department of Arkansas again supported Pack 232’s Honor Court on Feb. 29, 2020. They were given the use of the American Legion Community Hall aka “Siloam Community Building" at no cost. The post supplies them with a PA system and other items needed for their program. We helped with setup and used the post color guard to post the colors for the program.
The pack put together a great program with a Science theme. The Siloam Springs Fire Department judged the cakes and a great meal was served as a wonderful program was underway. As charter organization representative for the pack and the Department of Arkansas, Boy Scout Chairman Less Carroll asked Arkansas Department Commander Doyle Batey and Siloam Post 29 Commander Stuart Reeves to help present some awards before the Crossover of the Arrows. They also asked Jake Greeling, past department commander, past department historian and currently a member of the National Executive Committee, to take pictures. First Reeves presented the American Legion Good Citizenship Citation to Nathan Hahn, Eston Yandell and Avery Della Rosa for attaining the rank of Eagle Scout. Then Batey presented them with a Certificate of Recognition for outstanding achievement and exceptional leadership ability as evidence by their attainment of Eagle Scout from National Commander James W. “Bill” Oxford. Reeves then presented a Citation of Appreciation to Rhonda and Doug Calvert and Gary and Andrea Yandell for outstanding service and leadership that contributed to the advancement of the Scouting program at Post 29. Batey presented them with a Certificate of Appreciation in recognition and sincere appreciation of outstanding service and leadership that contributed to the advancement of American Legion programs and activities dedicated to God and Country form the Department of Arkansas.
