Sunday, November 5th Christian Barns of BSA Troop 530 was awarded the prestigious Eagle Scout Award at First Baptist Church in Marengo. Christian was fortunate to have his father Kevin Barnes, the Scout Master and brother/Eagle Scout Matt Barnes, present his award to him along with Assistant Scout Masters, Life Scout Mike Grant and fellow scouts. Christian had completed a new dog shelter at Glory Bound Rescue Ranch as his project. After volunteering there on multiple occasions, the existing dog shelter was in poor condition and would be a perfect opportunity as his Eagle Project.

The project was completed with the coordination of volunteers and donations in less than 3 weeks. Christian plans to continue with Troop 530 and mentor younger scouts to also reach this remarkable achievement.
