502s Madison Scouts Alumni Group Honors Chuck Eikel
Chuck Eikel played soprano bugle for the Madison Scouts in the 1950s. He continued his support of the corps by serving on the board of directors in the 1970s and 80s and was instrumental in developing corporate support for the corps in the Madison community. Last May, Chuck passed away from complications due to ALS (Lou Gehrig?s disease), but his support lives on.
Chuck?s fellow alumni, The Madison Scouts of the 50′s Alumni Group, collected funds in Chuck?s memory. Gordon Cnare contacted the corps and designated the donation be used to purchase new trumpets (sopranos) in Chuck?s honor. As well, a very generous donation was made on behalf of the Charles Eikel Estate through his daughter Siobhan McGuire.
