Providence – Local Scouts were honored at the Narraganset Council, Boy Scouts of America traditional “Gathering of Eagles” event at the Rhode Island State House on Tuesday.

“I saw a lot of promise in the room at this year’s Gathering of Eagles.

Governor McKee. “I was honored to meet these young men and I wish them the best.”
"Attaining the rank of Eagle Scout is an incredible achievement.
