Fuller to receive Golden Eagle award

AMESBURY — Ron Fuller, local Scoutmaster of Troop 4, will be recognized with Scouting’s Golden Eagle award during a special breakfast on Thursday, Nov. 14, from 7 to 8 a.m. at All Saints Church.

Given to Scouts and non-Scouts, the award was created to recognize those men and women who have been champions of community service. This event will also serve as a fundraiser to support the work of the Yankee Clipper Council, Boy Scouts of America, which serves Amesbury.

Fuller recently retired after 43 years in the retail clothing business as owner of the W.E. Fuller, but still serves as Scoutmaster of Troop 4.

After 43 years of dedicated service to Scouting and Amesbury, Fuller will be presented the award by the Yankee Clipper Council, which serves 52 communities in northeast Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire.

Fuller earned his Eagle Scout Award in 1963. He took over the position of Scoutmaster after graduating from college and has served in that role ever since. To date, he has mentored 58 Eagle Scouts and has guided thousands of boys who have passed through the troop.

He received the Good Shepherd Award, which is awarded to those who help Scouts strengthen their faith in their respective churches. He also twice received the National Boy Scout Scoutmasters Award, which recognizes the top 50 Scoutmasters in the country. Fuller chaired the “Back to the Future Carriagetown Jamobree” in 1991, which saw more than 6,000 Scouts from all over New England converge on Woodsom Farm for a weekend campout.

Reservations can be made by calling the Yankee Clipper Council Office at 978-478-5082.
