Eric Handley

    Achievements:

Eric Handley has been a resident of Sidney for over twenty years. He has been involved in Scouting since 2005 and has held several leadership positions. Being the father of two boys, he has become a father figure and a mentor to many young men who have grown into active citizens in our Community. Leading by example, Eric can always be counted on to pitch in no matter the time or day. “Eric never says ‘no’ when asked to help” was part of every letter of support received. Troop 401 is a source of pride in Sidney. The Town sees them each Memorial Day as color guard and doing everything from setting up chairs to selling hot dogs and cleaning up. Eric not only embodies the spirit of volunteerism, but he is also nurturing it. Additionally, a fine musician, storyteller, cribbage player and chef – he is always cheerful. Congratulations to Eric and his lovely wife Daphanie. We are honored to make you our Spirit of America Award recipient. Sidney Cubscout, Cubmaster 2006-2018 Sidney Scoutmaster Troop 401 2018-present.
