Ridgefield Boy Scouts turned out at Monday night\u2019s school board meeting to protest the high school\u2019s decision to not allow Eagle Scouts to wear their ceremonial blue and white cords with their high school cap and gown. \u201cI really think this is something that we should honor,\u201d said Don Romoser, of Troop 116, who spoke to the board dressed in his troop master uniform. At one point he held up one of the ceremonial Eagle Scout cords \u2014 a blue-and-white rope a few feet in length \u2014 to show the board what the scouts were discussing. Romoser said the scouts were learning to follow the right procedure by being there that night, after first having asked the school administration to allow them to wear their cords. \u201cFirst you go to the administration, then the board, before taking it public \u2014 which is what we\u2019re doing tonight,\u201d he said. Five members of the troop appeared at the meeting wearing their Boy Scouts of America uniforms. Alden Burns, a senior and one of the students in uniform, said wearing his cords at graduation \u201cwouldn\u2019t be disruptive.\u201d \u201cWe\u2019re just asking you to let us wear something that means a whole lot to us,\u201d Burns told the board. The board did not respond to any of the public comments \u2014 board Chairwoman Fran Walton noted at the beginning of the public comment period that the board\u2019s policy prevents them from making any direct response. The cords and graduation attire did not come up in any later board discussion. No decision was made as of press time Wednesday.
