Two local scouts — Mitchell Wilder and Alex Medeiros — received their Eagle Awards recently. Wilder is the son of Tom and Marcy Wilder and brother of Jessica Wilder. He began his scouting experience in 2001 as a Tiger Cub in Newport, RI. He continued through Wolf, Bear and Webelos 1 in Colorado Springs, Colo., and finished Cub Scouting by earning his Arrow of Light award with the Webelos 2 of Pack 224 in Eagle River. Mitchell joined Troop 219 in 2006 and has been active ever since.
Eagle River’s Winston Voetman was presented a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 at a ceremony held April 3 at Litihia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of South Anchorage.
