As a Boy Scout, Patrick earned fifty-seven merit badges camped out sixty-six nights and performed 171 hours of community service hours. Along his Boy scouting journey, he achieved many awards such as Cyber Chip, Firem’n Chit, National Outdoor Achievement Award for Camping Plus a Gold Device, World Conservation Award, Paul Bunyan Woodsman Award, Totin’ Chip and the World Conservation Award. Additionally, he earned five Religious Awards: Light of Christ, Parvuli Dei, Ad Altare Dei, Pope Pius XII and Pillars of Faith.

For his Eagle Scout project, Patrick choose to work with the Washington County Historical Society to convert a one-story log structure to a two-story log cabin with a bastion overhang. For this extensive service project, Patrick had to meet with the beneficiary, design the addition, raise funds and donations, organize volunteers, tools and materials and then manage the project. Altogether, Patrick raised $5,700 for the project and twenty-three volunteers assisted Patrick contributing 398 hours.

The Washington County Historical Society, grateful for the completed projected, dedicated the remodeled structure during their Whiskey Rebellion Days.
