Ali Shub­bar, Douglas Caristo and Alec Smi­lowski are the new­est Eagle Scouts from Boy Scout Troop 385.

The three were honored at a June 29 Court of Hon­or ce­re­mony at Troop 385’s home, United Meth­od­ist Church of the Good Shep­herd, at Chalf­ont Drive and Calera Road in the Far North­east. Each of them earned at least 21 mer­it badges, demon­strated Scout spir­it and or­gan­ized and com­pleted a ser­vice pro­ject.

Ali, of Holmes­burg, led the re­mov­al of 500-plus feet of old haz­ard­ous fen­cing at Lor­imer Park in Hunt­ing­don Val­ley.

Doug, of the Far North­east, in­stalled a large drain­age sys­tem to al­le­vi­ate roof drain­age wa­ter that flowed onto the main en­trance walk­way at the Church of the Good Shep­herd. The wa­ter would of­ten freeze in the winter, caus­ing a safety haz­ard for con­greg­ants.

Alec, of Southamp­ton, raised $1,500 and bought sup­plies for stu­dents at Our Lady of Cal­vary and A.L. FitzPatrick ele­ment­ary schools. ••
