I began my scouting adventure at age 6 with the Cub Scouts, and at 10 moved up to Boy Scouts. I am now a Life Scout having completed 33 merit badges, held several positions of responsibilities, including Senior Patrol Leader, and been very active with the growth of our troop and its activities. My long journey is now at the point where I am working toward earning the highest and most honored rank in Scouting, that of Eagle Scout.
To earn the Eagle rank I must plan, develop, and provide leadership to others in a service project helpful to the community. For my Eagle Scout Project, I have chosen to help Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Richmond Texas. The Church is in need of an outside area where parishioners can pray and mediate while outside, a path of brick and mortar will be constructed that leads from the parking area on the east side of church and lead to the center where there is currently of statue of Jesus. The path will be in the shape of a cross with two benches on each side of the path allowing people to sit and pray.
It is a big project that will require many hours of labor and approximately $3000 in materials. As part of my project, I am required to request donations to fund materials necessary for the construction of this project. Any financial assistance you can offer to help me achieve my goal of completing this project will be greatly appreciated. No amount is too small, and in the unlikely event any funds remain after the project is finished, they will go directly to the recipient of the project.
thank you for your support
