Eagle Project Announcement

Hey everyone! I hope your summers have been going well so far since the last time we talked at summer camp. Because there is no school during the summer, I planned to do my Eagle Project at this time. The project will take place at Ardena Acres Park. The overall goals of the project include building four wooden benches, repainting playgrounds, replacing a swing, and putting down new mulch. The project will be completed over two weekends:

Weekend 1: Saturday August 18th and Sunday August 19th
Time: 12:30 to 4:30
Place: My house (42 Yellowbrook Road, Freehold, NJ 07728)
Goal: Construct four wooden benches
Individual Materials Required: Old clothes, safety glasses, and work gloves
***For this stage of the project, older scouts are preferred, as we will be using heavier tools. 
***Note: For this weekend, eat lunch beforehand. My family owns and operates a backyard kennel and there is no extra time for food, as customers begin arriving at 5:00. Sorry. 

Weekend 2: Saturday August 25th and Sunday August 26th
Time: 12:30 to 4:30
Place: Ardena Acres Park (located on Camelot Drive right next to Ardena Elementary School, drive about half a mile down the road and you will see two playgrounds OR if you know where Chas lives, the park is located two houses away from him)
Goal: Replace a broken swing, remove old paint from the playgrounds, apply new paint to the playgrounds, put down new mulch
Individual Materials Required:  Old clothes, work gloves, rakes, shovels, wheelbarrows, and wire brushes (if owned)

***Any announcement regarding rescheduling of the Eagle Project due to inclement weather will also be posted on this website. 

The reason that I am posting this announcement is to recruit scouts to aid in the completion of this project. I understand that during the last week of August, many of you may be on vacation, however, any and all help would be appreciated. I hope to see as many of you there as possible to support me in my quest to attain the rank of Eagle Scout. If there are any questions, please email me at WhiteFangRocks@aol.com or call me at (732)-850-5816. Thanks!

Yours In Scouting, 
Junior Assistant Scoutmaster,
