Bailey brothers are Eagle Scouts

Added veterans' memorial, improved landscape at Lynnewood Methodist Church

Dan Bailey and Adam Bailey from Troop 948 have completed the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Boy Scouts.

The two completed their Eagle Scout projects at Lynnewood United Methodist Church, 4444 Black Ave. in Pleasanton. Dan's project involved improving the landscape and entrance; and Adam's project is a memorial for veterans located in front of the church. Both boys raised money to pay for their Eagle Projects. Adam raised funds by selling inscribed memorial bricks.

Dan and Adam are the sons of Jim and Carlene Bailey, Pleasanton. Jim also was a Boy Scout and an Eagle Scout. Dan and Adam's Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held Aug. 27.

I made eagle back around the time your father did. My kids, on the other hand, chose sports, which I found provided a similar experience in many ways, especially in the areas of leadership and responsibility.

Different paths lead to similar goals. Remember this.

Mike: sounds like you might still be smarting from your kids' choice of sports over scouting. Different paths can indeed lead to similar ends. It's too bad they don't have time for it all.

I was actually thinking how sports delivered much the same benefit to my kids as scouting did to me. It's nice to know that society provides well in a variety of ways.
