Neil, fellow scouts, parents, grandparents and friends have been helping Neil with his Eagle Scout Project. And just what is this project. It has entailed the construction of plywood molds to make concrete planters for Reitz Memorial High School in Evansville, Indiana. Yes, planters, and the had to make five small ones and two large ones to place on the campus. It took two weekends to pour, set, and remove the molds. The trailer only holds 3 small planters. It requires a full sized tractor and flatbed truck to move the two large one. So there are still 4 planters to be transported. These planters are intended to hold evergreen plants and beautify the campus.
Right now the project is on hold because Neil and his dad are camping with his troop at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. They return Friday. They are hoping this will all be in place by July 18, 2015 before classes begin again August 6, 2015 at Memorial and he begins his sophomore year.
Eagle Scout projects over the years have shown me that there is no easy project and each project benefits not only the scout but the environment to which they offer their service. Hats off to all scouts who achieve Eagle Scout status. And to all those who support them with their time, talent and treasure I say, "Thank you very much!"
Thanks be to God!
