David Holahan Eagle Project

Posted on May 16 2017 - 1:44pm
Hi, this is David Holahan and I am working on my eagle project this month and I'd like to invite the troop to help.  The project will be at the Eastside YMCA in Penfield where we will be working to improve the community garden.
 
When:  Saturday, May 27th.  From 10:00am-3:00pm.   Please sign up on the website so I know if you are coming.  Come for whatever time you can, even if you can't make the whole session (indicate time you can come when you sign up).
 
Where:  Eastside YMCA, 1835 Fairport Nine Mile Point Road, Penfield New York.  The community garden is directly behind the building between the parking lot and the playground.
 
What:  We will be installing a deer fence to raise the height of the existing fence. We will also be weeding the pathway between the beds and laying down new mulch. We will be assembling a starter compost bin to place in the garden. In addition, benches that have all ready been built and painted will be installed.
 
If you are able to bring any of the following items it will make the work easier:
Gloves, garden trowel (weeding tools), garden rake, spade, pitchfork.   In addition if anyone is able to bring a step ladder (5-8 feet) or a wheel barrow, please let me know.
 
Snacks will be available, and pizza will be provided for lunch.
 
The community garden is affiliated with the Active Older Adult program at the YMCA. Individuals from the AOA donate their time in the garden and the preschool program uses the garden for educational and activity purposes. The vegetables grown in the garden are donated to food cupboards in Penfield and East Rochester in addition to providing healthy snacks at the YMCA for the AOA.

Eagle Project - Ever Gavelis

Posted on May 8 2017 - 11:46pm

Hello Troop 167! 

My name is Ever Gavelis, and I recently gained approval for my Eagle Project! The project will consist of cleaning up a trail in Fairport, NY, known as Oxbow Road or just simply, "The Oxbow". The two dates of the cleanup will be May 13 from 9 am to 4 pm, and May 14 from 9 am to 5 pm.

Oxbow Road is currently a dirt road on the Erie Canal used as a walking trail that used to have many cottages going all the way down the road. There are many remnants of the old cottages including tires, fence material, brush, cinder blocks, railroad ties, and unwanted vegetation that needs to be removed.

 I will need many volunteers for this project - both scouts AND adults. Please sign up on the troop website to let me know if you can help. Also, I need many tools including shovels, wheelbarrows, chainsaws, branch clippers, pry bars, and bow saws. Please wear long clothing, boots, sunscreen, bug spray, long socks, work gloves, and be sure to bring a water bottle! Lunch will be provided on both days and there will be containers of water to fill up water bottles.

The parking location is anywhere along Old Post Road in Fairport - the entrance to The Oxbow is at the end of Old Post Road.

Feel free to look at the links that I have attached for more information about The Oxbow.

 Please contact me with any questions, concerns, or comments that you may have.

Thank you,

Ever Gavelis.
