Lynnwood Troop 304 Scout David Laush is one step closer to achieving Eagle rank with the completion and installation of his Eagle Scout project, a new historical marker in Perrinville.

“I got the idea for this more than a year ago,” said Laush, “but really got working on it earlier this spring.”

The new marker features historical photos and a brief history of Perrinville.

Under the guidance of his Eagle Scout sponsor Edmonds artist Andy Eccleshall, Laush researched the history of Perrinville in local records and the archives of the Edmonds Historical Museum, learning how Gertie and Carl Perrin founded the town in the early years of the last century.

Funding for the project was provided by the Lynnwood Rotary, American Legion Post 37, and various friends and family. Laush also thanks Perrinville property owner Greg Payne and the Russell Sign Company, without whose generous assistance the project could not have happened.

Laush is joined by Dr. Lalo Espinosa of the Lynnwood Rotary, Lynnwood Mayor Nicola Smith, Rotarian Inae Piercy, and Brian Sequin of American Legion Post 37 at the Saturday afternoon unveiling.
