Graham Eagle Scout Project

$2,000 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 37 people in 38 months
My name is Graham Clute and I am a freshman at Crystal Lake Central HIgh School.  I am in Boy Scout Troop 158 in Crystal Lake and working on my rank as Eagle Scout.  I have chosen Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple as beneficiary and landscaping the outside of the Temple as my Eagle Project.  I have attended the Temple for the last few years and really believe in their mission of spreading peace and kindness to all people.  

The Blue Lotus Temple is in Woodstock, Illinois and is in a 100+ year old church.  They have done many renovations inside and are currently raising funds to preserve the beautiful stained glass windows too.  The landscape around the building is the area that they have chosen for me to focus on.  I am working with a couple landscape designers to get ideas and plans.  And with my team of other scouts and volunteers, we will do all the labor and have the project completed by May 30th- Vesaka Day- the  Annual Buddha Celebration & Parade.  

I am raising funds to purchase the landscape materials needed- trees, bushes, perennials, etc.  Any funds raised above the needed amount will be donated directly to the Temple.

Thank you!
