The Lou Lartigue Sr. family had a very special Thanksgiving celebration this year. What made it so special, Lartigue said, was that "We added a new Eagle Scout around the dinner table." Scouting has always been a part of raising the Lartigue children and grandchildren, the Dog River area resident said. Of his 5 grandsons, 4 are Eagles and one is a Life Scout who will reach Eagle status next year. In addition, he said, "My son Louis and son-in-law Sam are also Eagle Scouts."
Pictured in the order the men made Eagle Scout, from left are Lou Lartigue Sr., Lou Lartigue Jr., Sam Schoolfield Sr., Jake Lartigue Sam Schoolfield Jr., Max Menaker, and Jack Schoolfield. The next Eagle to be is Abe Schoolfield (not pictured).
"We all gave thanks for the Scouting Program," Lou Lartigue said.
