Boy Scouts area council looking for past Eagles

The Baltimore area's Boy Scouts of America council is searching for quite a few good men -- those who attained the Boy Scouts' highest rank as Eagles, and are now older than 25 -- in connection with a celebration of Scouting's 90th anniversary and its theme emphasizing leadership in the 21st century.

Adult Eagles not active in Scouting are asked to call 410-GO-SCOUT and leave their name, address, telephone number and year of Eagle award; or file electronically at the Web site www.geo 2186/Eagle.htm.

Many of the Eagles will be invited to a reception at 4: 30 p.m. Nov. 11 at the Naval Academy. The reception will begin a yearlong celebration of the anniversary.

The Baltimore council reported locating about 400 veteran Eagle Scouts since the search began in September.
