Travis Ray Clower and Trey Thomas Clower will be recognized at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor, Saturday, February 27, 2016, at the National Scout Museum in Irving, Texas.

For Travis’ project he educated the South Colleyvine assisted living residents on the Vial of Life program and provided an afternoon of entertainment, crafts, door prizes and homemade treats donated by troop family members and friends.


For Trey’s project he enhanced a bird watching area at The Preserve at McCormick Park by clearing debris and constructing benches and bird “homes.”
