ROCKWELL – Chadd Michael Blanchard, a member of Mason City Boy Scout Troop 401, Winnebago Council 173, earned the rank of Eagle Scout Dec. 13, 2011.

Many friends and family attended to congratulate him on his accomplishment. Blanchard began Cub Scouting with Pack 24 of Sheffield, in 2005, and earned his Arrow of Light in 2009, Cub Scouts highest earnable rank. In 2011 he transferred to Boy Scout Troop 1401, where he earned his Eagle Rank. He is currently serving as a junior assistant scoutmaster for his troop. On his way to becoming an Eagle Scout, Blanchard earned the rank of first class, within his first year. His life project was the total reorganization and building of two wooden handled carriers to house all the troop’s merit badge books. He is a Brotherhood member of the Sac-N-Fox State Large Group Lodge 108, and Order of the Arrow, scouting’s Music Competition ALGONA — The Bishop National Honor Society.

In 2010, Blanchard attended the National Scout Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. In 2011, Blanchard attended the Northern Tier cold weather camping called Okpik, and later that year attended a youth leader training conference in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming, called Eagle Claw, where he earned his Leave No Trace Outdoor Ethics Trainer Badge. In 2012, Blanchard will be attending the National Sea Base in the Florida Keys, and will return to the Big Horns for another Eagle Claw. In 2013, he will be attending the National Scout Jamboree at the first ever Bechtel Summit in West Virginia. Blanchard’s Eagle project was completed in

October, 2011. His project involved completely rebuilding the playground at his church, the United Methodist Church in Rockwell. He also added new landscape timber and new woodchips, and two new sitting benches — one for small children and one for adults. Blanchard is 14-yearsold and will complete his 8th-grade year this May. He is the son of Brent and Theresa Blanchard, of Rockwell, and grandson of Jim and Kathy Blanchard of Rockport, Texas; Bruce and Jerriann Ries of Rockwell, and Noma Chadd, of Callaway, Neb. The title of “Eagle Scout” is held for life, thus giving rise to the phrase, “Once an Eagle, always an Eagle.” But not without a special thanks to my parents, Ed DePaepe, and Chuck Hogg. None of this would be possible without all of their help. “Thank You.” May the journey continue and be long.
