Erik Lindman and Brian Newton become Eagle Scouts

Erik Lindman and Brian Newton of Boy Scout Troop 420 received Boy Scout's highest rank Jan. 9 at an Eagle Court of Honor at the United Methodist Church of Bothell.
   Earning the rank of Eagle requires the scouts to demonstrate many skills, such as integrity, leadership, self-reliance, self-discipline, character and community involvement as well as many other skills.
   One of the requirements of earning the rank of Eagle is to lead a project that benefits the public.
   Lindman chose to construct and install bird habitats at Locust Creek Park in the city of Brier to encourage more birds to become residents for the public to enjoy.
   Newton lead a project for the city of Bothell at Blyth Park that outlined the history of events that have taken place in the city of Bothell on the growth rings of an old tree and a narration plaque.
   The two have both chosen to continue with Troop 420 as volunteers.
   Erik is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Lindman. Brian is the son of Mr. and Mrs. David Newton. They reside in the city of Kenmore.
