Marcel was officially honored November 5th for his achievement of Eagle Scout, which he was actually awarded May 9th, 2007. His ceremony was held outdoors at Larson Park, where a large bonfire was prepared and ignited by his brother Renny.
At his Eagle Scout ceremony, the Mayor Gerry Welch issued a proclamation declaring November 8th "Marcel Blume day" in Webster Groves. For his Eagle Scout project, Marcel directed the building of a pair of redwood benches at Hixson Middle school that are used at the Outdoor Learning Center there.
