The Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony for St. Charles teen Matthew Kramer will be held Sunday, Oct. 11, at St. Patrick Church in St. Charles. His Eagle project at Garfield Farm Museum in Campton Hills was a multiphase project that took over 200 man hours and spanned 8 days. He had to break down and move a huge pile of concrete and rubble, clear a farm courtyard of weeds and waste, empty a 100-year-old barn of debris, dirt and machinery, clean and reorganize the contents into a manageable system, build and hang two wooden farm gates and build and hang a Dutch style barn door. All this was the groundwork for the restoration of a farm complex.
