MIDDLE POINT – Van Wert Lodge No. 1197, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks participated in the Eagle Scout Court of Honor for Cole Gorman on Sunday, May 13. Cole is a member of Boy Scout Troop #32, sponsored by the Middle Point Methodist Church, Middle Point, Ohio.

Cole was presented an American Flag and an Eagle Scout Certificate from the Elks. He also received a letter of commendation and a special citation from Malcolm J. McPherson Jr., Grand Exalted Ruler/National President.

For Cole’s Eagle Scout Project he installed gates at the intersection of U.S. Route 224 and the walk/bike path that crosses it to prevent riders from inadvertently walking or riding out onto the roadway.

Representing the Van Wert Lodge at the ceremony was Michael C. Stanley, Lodge Scouting Liaison.
