Boy Scout Troop 83 completing service project

Boy ScoutsApril is National Community Service month and Boy Scout Troop 83, sponsored by Whitehall American Legion Post 83 is taking it seriously.

Three of the scouts are striving for the rank of Star Scout and each must complete a six hour service project. The options around Whitehall are many, however they decided to each take on a task at a place they have all spent many hours.

John Hollister, Jason Ashline, and Garrett Stevens met with Julie Eagan to discuss some projects that could be done at the Recreation Center. Julie was more than happy with the offer and together each decided which project they would lead. Though there were many items up for choosing, each boy bundled a few of the tasks into each of their projects.

John’s project is painting, Jason’s project is the children’s play area, and Garrett’s project is cleaning the fence line along the canal.

Each scout will chose a day and lead his project by demonstrating leadership, planning the work, organize the personnel available, and direct the project to its completion. When the projects are complete, each scout must then report to Scout Master Bob Gendron what the project was, how it benefited others, who helped carry out the project and what materials were used and how were they acquired.
