Eagle Project - Fundraising - Daniel Waldman

Posted on Aug 14 2016 - 12:04am
Hello Troop!
I am working on my Eagle Scout project.  It is a raised boardwalk that will allow hikers in Lehigh Valley Park to cross a marshy area that is often flooded. This project is somewhat expensive due to the metal stanchions that we will be using, as well as the length of the boardwalk (150 feet).  In total, the entire project will cost around $3000.  The money will be used to purchase supplies for the project. This is a very costly project, but when it rains, the area that the boardwalk will cross is filled with almost a foot of water, making the train inaccessible to hikers and bikers.  Having this boardwalk constructed will allow for easier crossing of the marsh. To help with the fundraising I have set up a GoFundMe account, run by Victor Hiking Trails. I was hoping for a donation of five or ten dollars per person and we can help the hikers cross the marsh safely and without getting wet.  
 
 
Thank you very much for your help!

Eagle Project - Will Scheuerman

Posted on Aug 13 2016 - 11:56pm

Hi Scouts and Parents,

For my Eagle project I am working on a building that stores gear used by the McQuaid Cross Country Invitational as well as other teams and Monroe County Parks.  The exterior paint is peeling badly and the interior is unorganized.  For my project, we are painting the exterior, doing some repairs, and reorganizing part of the interior.  On the afternoon of the 23rd we'll be painting the exterior which is a combination of wood and cinderblock brick.  The County will powerwash the building before the 23rd so we will be ready to paint at 1PM!  Some Eagle Scouts from my cross country team will be joining us.

When you sign up at our Troop's website, please indicate if you can bring the following:

2 inch and 3 inch paint brushes

Paint stirrers

Rollers and paint roller pole extensions

Paint roller trays

Scouts, wear clothes that are ok if they get paint on them. Bring a hat, sunscreen and water.

Adults, if you are able to help, that would be really helpful.  There are two peak areas of the building that need to be painted and need to be reached by extension ladders.  Scouts are not able to work on an extension ladder so your help is appreciated.

Start: Aug 23 2016 - 12:30pm
End: Aug 23 2016 - 5:30pm
Location:  The "White" House. Genesee Valley Park

We will have a pizza lunch at 12:30 and will start painting at 1PM.  Our rain date will be Wednesday, August 24th.

Thanks for helping me on the project.  Please register at our Troop's website.  I will add a map shortly to the website that has the specific location of the site.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Personal Management Merit Badge

Posted on Jun 13 2016 - 1:33pm
Personal Management Merit Badge
 
Mr. Santowski is a merit badge counselor for the Personal Management merit badge and is offering to have Scouts sign up for this merit badge.  One of the key requirements for the Personal Management merit badge is 13 weeks of tracking income, expenses and savings against a prepared budget.  As many Scouts earn money during the summer through various jobs, he is requesting that Scouts who are interested in this MB sign up by sending him an email with your contact information (name, email address and phone number) so they can take advantage of this time frame.  Once the signup is complete, he will send out information to the group regarding this budget tracking requirement.  The balance of the requirements will be covered during a merit badge meeting at the beginning of the new Troop year (September, most likely).
 
Note:  This is open for up to 10 scouts and is on a first come first serve basis. 
 
Please email Mr. Santowski at rsantowski@aol.com if you wish to sign up.
