C. Gundacker Eagle Project Update

Dear Scouts, Parents, and Friends, 

The time has come for my Eagle Scout Leadership Project. The project will be on Saturday April 12th, 2014 and we will be meeting at 8:30 AM at 1131 Manor Road, Staten Island, NY 10314. It is the camp next to Pouch, Henry Kaufmann Campgorunds. The project should last into the afternoon. 

The project is building a gateway that starts a trail, the gateway will honor a Police officer, and cleaning up a 100 yard trail, so rakes, gloves and power drills will be needed. If you have any of these supplies and are willing to donate or loan them for my project (they will be returned) that would be a great help.  If you plan on bringing any materials, please call/email me from the listed contact information, as soon as possible.

We will be building, painting and cleaning in a park area so be prepared to get a little dirty. Wear older clothes and boots and please bring work gloves. It may be muddy still. 

Please call/ e-mail me to let me know if you can go, if you have materials, and/or if you can’t go but have materials to lend. 

Any help or time that you could offer the day of the project would be greatly appreciated. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. 

Thank you in advance for your help.

Yours in Scouting,
Christopher Gundacker
