Chuck Eaton, The Spirit of Adventure Council Executive stated, “We are fortunate to have Arthur still involved in such a significant organization. The boys that join Scouting are looking for fun and adventure and in the meantime they are growing as individuals preparing to be leaders among their peers. I am glad that we can support them in their journey.”

Arthur currently resides in Medford, MA with his wife Beverly.

“I congratulate the Class of 2016 Eagle Scouts! It is an honor and privilege to represent them at this momentous time in their lives,” stated Arthur N. Mabbett. “I understand and value, first hand, the hard work and persistence that each Scout has demonstrated to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. I know these young Eagle Scouts will take the Boy Scout experience with them throughout their life and will become our future leaders. I congratulate them on their success and also their parents and adult leaders for their efforts and assistance.”

As stated on the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) website, “The BSA is one of the nations’ largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations, providing programs for young people that build character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship and develops personal fitness.
