Message from your President



Welcome Fellow Eagle Scouts,


     I am honored and humbled to be your president. The Eagle Scout Association of Greater St. Louis is celebrating 70 years of serving the Scouts of the Greater St. Louis Area Council. The mission of the Eagle Scout Association follows the ethical values of the Boy Scout Oath and Law. We are a Brotherhood of Eagle Scouts that serve our Scouts through service projects, Council camp improvements, and trail to Eagle support. Our members continue to give back to Scouting for what Scouting has bestowed upon them. We are servant leaders with a goal of helping Scouts succeed in the Boy Scout program. Future Eagle Scouts will become the distinguished leaders of tomorrow. We are a social organization, and plan various activities to promote fellowship, team building, and friendship.


     Founded in 1947, the Eagle Scout Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and our membership dues cover our operating expenses. 100% of our fundraising proceeds are returned to BSA related programs including Eagle Scout project grants, NYLT camp improvements, Wood Badge coffee for trainers and attendees, and GSLAC shooting sports. The Eagle Shotgun Range at S-F was funded and built by our organization, and provides both skeet and trap shooting for an enhanced BSA shotgun program. Merit Badge Make-Up Day is an excellent example of the ESA providing an opportunity for Scouts to move forward on the Eagle trail. Scouts can complete partial merit badges from summer camp at this annual event. The majority of active and dedicated members of the Order of the Arrow become Eagle Scouts. Shawnee Lodge has a rich history of service and commitment to the Greater St. Louis Area Council, and their Arrowmen have volunteered numerous hours of Cheerful Service to Council camps, local communities, and conservation projects. Our leadership team wants to work with their key leadership, and become greatly involved with Shawnee Lodge through service project assistance and financial support. Our joint efforts will enhance the annual plan for Shawnee Lodge and its membership. A few of our members received the prestigious NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award this year. I would like to congratulate Louis "Buzz" Eckelkamp, James Janning, Roger McFarland and Reverend David Spooner for receiving this distinguished honor. These gentlemen have a strong dedication and commitment towards their Scouting involvement, local community and professional career.


     Our Council recently merged with the Lewis and Clark Council, and has grown in size with regards to camps, resources, and Scouts. The ESA leadership team reached out to the Lewis and Clark NESA group, and have built a strong relationship with their key leadership. The ESA is pursuing service project opportunities at their camps, and will work with their group to improve and enhance those properties. The ESA and Council work together to achieve a successful Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner. The dinner is an annual GSLAC fundraising event that honors every Eagle Scout from the calendar year. We recognize every Eagle Scout at the dinner by presenting them an Eagle challenge coin. A photo is taken of every Eagle Scout with the ESA President to capture a special moment from the dinner. I invite every ESA member to become more involved with our organization, and hope to grow membership with active members. Please reach out to your Eagle friends, and encourage them to join this awesome group of Eagle Scouts. Here’s to another 70 years of service to the Scouting program!!! Please join me in building a brighter future for the boys.


"Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle!!!"


Yours in Scouting,


Christopher Spiegel
