Silverton Eagle Scout leads Rose Festival Color Guard

The Cascade Pacific Counsel of the Boy Scouts of America were asked to lead the color guard of the Portland Rose Festival Parade last month. About 200 scouts and adult leaders from around the Counsel marched in the parade. Among the front of the group was Eagle Scout Ethan Frederick of Silverton.

Ethan was selected to be in the center of the group, partly due to his experience leading the Hometown Parade at the Homer Davenport Community Festival. He felt honored, excited and proud to be afforded the opportunity to set the pace of the parade.

Three dozen scouts from the Counsel – including Ethan – will be representing the region at the World Scout Jamboree beginning July 22, 2019.
