MOUNTAIN LAKES — Mountain Lakes BSA Troop 41 honored its three newest Eagle Scouts, Olin Bose, Aaron Lukowski, and Andrew Wilmot. Mountain Lakes Borough Mayor Khizar Sheikh, State Senator Tony Bucco, and Morris County Board of Commissioners Deputy Director Steve Shaw attended the ceremony and made presentations at the Community Church of Mountain Lakes.

For his Eagle Project, Olin, a senior at Mountain Lakes High School, researched, constructed and installed three historical marker signs on the Boulevard in Mountain Lakes describing the history of the Morris County Traction Company’s Trolley service, which ran along the Boulevard, linking Denville and Boonton through Mountain Lakes from 1910 to 1928. The signs were installed on the Boulevard at Pocono Road, Tower Hill Road, and Glen Road. Olin has earned 66 Merit Badges, and is a member of the BSA Honor Society, the Order of the Arrow, and had previously served as Troop 41 Senior Patrol Leader. Olin participated in the Troop’s Philmont High Adventure Expedition in New Mexico in 2022.

Aaron Lukowski’s Eagle Project was a conservation project at Mountain Lakes’ Kaufman Park, the site of the Borough’s annual holiday displays, which included refurbishing the fire pit and benches and constructing a gravel pathway. Aaron, whose family has moved to Severna Park, Maryland, where he is a senior at Severna Park High School, had previously served as a Patrol Leader and was the Troop’s Shooting Champion, and participated in the Troop’s Philmont High Adventure Expedition in New Mexico in 2022.

Andrew Wilmot, a sophomore at Mountain Lakes High School, designed, built and installed three weatherproof book-sharing stations (“Mini-Libraries”), placed at Island Beach, Birchwood Beach, and Wildwood School for his Eagle Project. Andrew has earned 65 Merit Badges and has previously served as Troop 41 Senior Patrol Leader. Andrew is a Member of the BSA Honor Society, and the Order of the Arrow, and also participated in the Troop’s Philmont High Adventure Expedition in New Mexico in 2022.

Mountain Lakes BSA Troop 41 was chartered in 1921, and the town has produced 175 Eagle Scouts over the past 103 years.
