    Nate Keightly Eagle Project – Please Respond 

    Troop,

    Please respond to Nate at the e-mail below about helping out with his Eagle Project.  Remember, you too will be doing one yourself one day and will need help as well!!

     

    Hello Everyone,

    My name is Nate Keightley. As you may or may not know I am a Life Scout working toward my Eagle. Down below will be the dates of my project and fundraiser. I need you guys to help me! For any scouts ranking up, this is a good source of service hours. My fundraiser will be a car wash. Simple, but my project is building 8 shelves. Each shelf will have 3 hooks, 3 cubbie holes and an interchangeable name plate above each hook. They will be hand cut, painted and routed.

    Eagle Fundraiser

    Where: The Rock Church of Lemay

    1601 Telegraph Rd, St Louis, MO 63125
    When: July 19, 2014
    From 9am – 2pm

         Feel free to wear water clothes and keep electronics away so they don’t get wet. Please bring towels, buckets and sponges! Lunch will be provided at the church.

    Day Final – Total Domination Yesterday 

    Today is the final day at camp.  Boys will be spending the day taking care of any loose ends that need to be finished up.

    You can be proud of our boys for totally dominating the sports challenges by winning both the volleyball and dodge ball events yesterday!!!  The boys are looking to dominate again in finishing off the Staff in a volleyball playoff.

    It’s been a great week – can’t believe we go home tomorrow.  We are still hoping to be rolling by 8ish to be back at the admin by 1ish.  We will do our normal call as we are getting  back into town.

    I know everyone will be excited to see their Scouts and will be ready to hear all about it as you make your way home tomorrow.  If I could please make sure your Scout is helping to unload the trailer, also I would ask you not to leave the admin until I release you all.  We need all they boys to help get the trailer unloaded, as well as make sure any loose gear is accounted for.

     

    Thanks for letting your Scout come to camp.  This will be a week they will remember forever.

     

    Thanks,

    Mr. Piel
