UNION, NJ-   Christian Glaser became an Eagle Scout at a Court of Honor held with Boy Scout Troop 68 on Sunday at the Union Elks Lodge.

Glaser, in scouting since the first grade, cleared the backyard and added benches at the historic Caldwell Parsonage for his Eagle Scout project.  “The project took four weeks from clean-up of the brush to building the new benches,” said Glaser.

“Our thanks to Christian and the many volunteers who worked on this project,” said Vice President of the Union Historical Society David Arminio.
