The celebration was held at Truckee Donner Recreation andamp; Park Districts Church Street community Center. Local businessman and longtime acquaintance of the Cofer family Paul Curtis was the Master of Ceremonies. More than 120 family, friends, Scouts and distinguished guests attended this Eagle Scout Court of Honor. The award ceremony was followed by a Hawaiian Luau complete with hula and hip-hop dancers. The Cofer family thanks everyone who assisted Ikaika along the Eagle Trail.
