Neil Britton Eagle Scout of Troop 55 Riverside


Troop 55 Riverside congratulates our newest Eagle Scout, Neil Britton! A musician himself, Neil's passion for music was the inspiration for his Eagle project. Over the course of several weeks, he organized a musical instrument drive to benefit The Rhode Island Rhythm & Blues Preservations Society, a charitable organization the donates used musical instruments to children who may otherwise not have the opportunity to play an instrument. With the help of the troop, he collected 34 instruments, tripling the expectation of his charitable organization. The instruments will all be examined, cleaned and repaired if necessary before being distributed to less fortunate youth across Rhode Island. Great job, Neil!
Neil Britton has been involved with Boy Scouts since first grade. As an active member of our troop, he has learned life skills, developed a strong sense of camaraderie and community and has shown excellent leadership skills in his scouting career. He is the 6th scout to earn the rank of Eagle within Troop 55 Riverside. We are honored to be a part of the growth and success of these young men.
