Eagle Scout Project: April 29th, 2012

Dear Scouts, Parents and Friends,

The rank of Eagle Scout is one of the most significant achievements that a Boy Scout can achieve during his time as a scout. To become an Eagle Scout, among other things a scout must plan and lead an Eagle Scout Leadership project that includes service to the community and/or a beneficiary. It is with great please to tell you that the time has come for our Eagle Scout Leadership Projects.

The two separate and distinct projects will both be on Sunday, April 29th, 2012 at Seabee Park in Fort Wadsworth (Staten Island, NY 10305). We will be meeting at 8:00 AM at the pavilion at Seabee Park (directions will be provided).

There will be two projects going on simultaneously. Jack’s project will be building tent pads for a future urban camping site. Sean’s project will be building corral fences around the camping sites and rehabilitating (scraping /painting) BBQ grills around the pavilion.

Building the tent pads and the fences will involve quite a lot of dirt and wood lifting. We recommend wearing old work clothing that you don’t care about and wouldn’t mind getting dirty. While we repurpose the grills, we will be stripping the rust on the grills and repainting them.

If you have any wire brushes, shovels, gloves, or eye goggles, we would be happy to have you bring them to help with the project. If you have any of these supplies, please call/e-mail Sean or Jack with the contact information below as soon as possible.

Even if you can only attend for a short period of time, we definitely need the manpower to accomplish these projects. Any help or time you can spare for the projects will be greatly appreciated. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Thank you in advance.

Sean Fisher                                                  Jack Rosak
