My name is Joshua Sass and I am in the boy scout troop 290 in Colts Neck, NJ. I am currently a Life Scout, 15 years old and a freshman in high school. This “Go-Fund-Me” is for the purose of funding my Eagle Scout Project that I intend to start once I reach my fundraising goal of $2000. My Eagle Project is to take down, rebuild/restore and paint 150 feet of an old fence at the Colts Neck library located in my hometown.
Currently there is a garden with a reading area which has been recently renovated and is dedicated to the children of Colts Neck. Unfortunately, the fence enclosing the garden is old, broken down and worn out. The wood is rotten, parts are missing and it doesn't Iook appealing. I would like to replace the fence for two reasons. The first reason is that I think that a new fence would do wonders for the garden. I plan to restore the fence with vertical cedar wood pictured above. I also plan to put in a newly designed pergula that will add to the fence's structure and integrity.
When I lead construction of the new fence it will become more visually appealing and structurally stable. It is my hope that more people would want to go to the garden once it is renovated to completion. This will also motivate more people to visit the garden and get their children more involved in the library.
The second reason is that a new fence would get more people to visit the garden because it will be more open and inviting. In Colts Neck very few people are informed that there is a beautiful recently decorated garden at the library. By rebuilding this fence, I hope that more people will become interested in viewing and visiting the area and get informed that there is a children’s garden and reading area for them to enjoy. Whether it be by flyers being send out, articles being published or people noticing something different; I would like to see the changes happen and see people use the garden to its fullest potential.
I am very grateful for you taking the time to read this and to consider donating to my Eagle Project. All donations you grant to me will be used to rebuilding a beautiful new fence at the Colts Neck Library’s Children’s Garden.
All funds remaining after the project is complete will be donated to the library through the “Friends of the Library”. The Library is located at: 1 Winthrop Dr, Colts Neck, NJ 07722
