Additional comments.
1. Tylor Borggren - "Eagle Scout"::
This fine historical marker was the project that Tylor Borggren of Plymouth, Indiana (and helpers) did for Tylor to become an "Eagle Scout". Indeed Tylor, you have well earned the rank of "Eagle Scout" and through this project you have created history itself.

It would be a favor to others if you could tell us about the entire project - in your own words!!! (Do you or your family have other photos or newspaper clippings that might help?) Tylor, feel free to add any and all comments.
