Jake Duquaine is a member of Troop 14, chartered by the Congregational United Church of Christ out of Neenah, WI.
Jake successfully completed his Eagle Board of Review on May 18, 2023.
His Eagle project, in his own words:
“For my home parish of St. Margaret Mary in Neenah, I renovated the outdoor signs they use for the Christmas and Lenten seasons. I replaced old, wooden signs that were on steel posts with new, aluminum signs that are on steel pipes with threaded bases for easy installment, removal, and switching midseason. Bonus being, I aimed to preserve the original art of the parishioner that had donated them. By using photoshop to get cleaner images and having WG Inc. of Doty Island print the signs on a lightweight aluminum and with UV and scratch protection, I was able to preserve the original shapes while also bringing a new, modern look to the signs. These signs benefit both the maintenance team who have to install and remove the signs as well as the parishioners who get to walk a new and improved Stations of the Cross and Nativity Scene. This project took a lot of work on my end as it required a lot of power operated tools that I only had one of available. I did have a day that I had 7 friends, some Scouts, some not, help me dig the holes to place the bases in the ground before the first freeze as this was crunch time in mid-October.”
His unit leader is Vicki LaFountain.
A Court of Honor is yet to be scheduled.
