Scout earns Eagle rank with local project


Last updated 8/2/2007 at Noon

Local Boy Scout Alec Kettenhofen of Troop 731 recently attained the rank of Eagle Scout. He is one in a long line of successful scouts from his troop who have attained this rank.

Kettenhofen’s Eagle Scout Project (one of many requirements for prospective Eagles) was done at the Palomares House in Fallbrook. He installed a patio of interlocking pavers for use by musicians during Stagecoach Days every October. His project required a lot of time and donations; he thanks Elizabeth Hougen, the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club, St. John’s Thrift Shop and the Angel Society for their generous monetary donations. He would also like to thank Fallbrook Equipment Rentals for allowing him to borrow the equipment needed free of charge and Southwest Boulder & Stone for donating about $1,200 worth of supplies to the project.

Kettenhofen plans to do a joint Court of Honor (the ceremony in which the Eagle Scout is officially awarded his new rank) with a few other boys from his troop who will attain Eagle Scout this summer.

Kettenhofen was a scout for six and a half years prior to earning Eagle and turned 18 in May. He lived in Fallbrook until three years ago, when he moved up to Orange County, where he currently lives with his family. He is a Sea Scout with Sea Scout Ship 90 of Newport Beach and is currently the rank of Apprentice. He attends Orange Coast College and plans to transfer to the California Maritime Academy in the next two years, where he will major in maritime transportation in order to pursue a career as a civilian cargo freighter officer.
