MGuti_SvcPrjt

FELLOW SCOUTS AND PARENTS

The time has come for my eagle scout project and I need your assistance. The date of my project is September 6thand 7th.  It will be at the cemetery on Forest Avenue and Willowbrook Road. The entrance to use is on Willowbrook Road.

My project will consist of scraping the fences and then repainting them and then clearing up some of the ivy that has taken over much of the cemetery.

I recommend wearing old clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and if you have please bring gloves and paint scrapers if not I will supply them.

The time to be there is at 8am and we will finish both days at around 4pm and if not maybe later on or earlier, depending on how fast we complete it.

The organization is the Abandoned Cemeteries.

Thank You,
Matthew Gutierrez

Summer Camp, Leadership Applications and Upcoming Eagle Project

Summer Camp was a success!  Everyone worked hard and earned many merit badges, but, best of all they had fun doing it. Need proof?  Have a look at the photos in the “Photo Archive” section.

For those scouts who did not receive a Junior Leader Training Application, we have posted the files for your downloading pleasure.

Please remember when making your choices:

  • Choose three (3) separate leadership positions you are interested in. Most interested to least interested.
  • Insure your non-scouting life is conducive to the leadership position you wish to attain. If you can’t perform the job, you will be removed from the job.
  • The application must be signed by you AND your parent, so be sure that you are both of the same mind.
  • The applications MUST BE HANDED in at our September registration meeting soon to be published on the Troop Google calendar.

Remember:  Personal Responsibility – You are the Captain of your own future!
