BSA Eagle Project for YMCA, Fredericksburg VA

Hello, my name is Joshua Jackson. I am a 15-year-old Life Scout with Troop 516 of the Aquia District, NCAC, Boy Scouts of America.  I will be doing an Eagle Scout service project for the Rappahannock Area, Massad YMCA in Fredericksburg VA.

The Rowe tennis center within the Massad YMCA lacks storage and a reception, relaxing and entertaining area.  The objective of the project is to create a place where patrons can relax, store their equipment and provide a suitable entertainment area for guests.  Project will include installing storage cabinets with counter top and an entertainment center including sound system.  Please see attached plans for details.

Donations will go towards the supplies and materials for the entire project. Any additional funds will be donated to the Massad Branch YMCA in Fredericksburg.  The Massad YMCA as well as the Boy Scouts of America are registered as a charitable organization under 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax deductible in accordance with IRS regulations.  Tax ID: 54-0965826

I have included links to the YMCA and our Troop webpages.  Please feel free to review our organizations and our causes.  Every dollar helps, so please donate whatever you can.  Thank you to everyone that supports and donates to this effort.  The YMCA, BSA and myself greatly appreciate it.
