Service Hours available, and Help Needed in FOUR EAGLE PROJECTS

Posted on Jul 25 2021 - 11:02pm

We have FOUR scouts working on their Eagle Rank, and they need your help.  They are striving to finish their projects this summer break, so we need our scouts to step up and help when they are available.


Saturday July 31, Karthi Parthipan is holding a car wash to raise funds for his project.

Saturday July 31, Shoham Ghose is building his project.

Saturday August 7, Saurav Rout is holding a car wash to raise funds for his project.

Sunday August 8, Neel Mavalli is building his project.


They are all worthy projects benefiting our community.  As you can see, there are multiple needs on the same weekends, so please sign up where you can.  Better still, bring a friend to help too.  Parents, I am sure they could use your help, and your support in the car washes as well.  Working together as a troop, we can give them the support they need to get this done!


If you have any questions about the projects, there is contact information in the information of each calendar item.  Click on the links above to sign up.
