Metuchen Memorial Park Renovation

$600 of $2,375 goal

Raised by 7 people in 25 months
Hey All!

My name is Ethan Wolfe, and I am a prospective Eagle Scout candidate from Troop 74. I would like to renovate the Metuchen Memorial Park, and I need your help to do it.

It is my belief that the Metuchen Memorial Park has a tremendous potential to be a place for reflection and rest, however the Park is not as conducive to this as it could be. The benches are not in the best of shape, and some of them are directed away from the memorial. I would like to refurbish the four concrete/wood benches and reposition them in a newly designated seating area. It is my hope that this project will increase the parks usage and, therefore, awareness of the sacrifices that Metuchen residents have made for the freedoms of this great country.

I come from a family who has served this country for three genereations. I grew up a miltary brat and I have been able to witness firsthand the incredible sacrifices servicemen and women make for this country, and I would like to be able to repay them with this small gesture.

The funds raised will go directly towards supplies, equiptment, and food for the (free) labourers. In accordance with the Boy Scouts of America's requirements, these funds are being raised in the name of the Borough of Metuchen, and any money excceding the cost of the project will be given to the city.

Any donation towards this project, large or small, would be greatly appreciated!

It only let me post three photos, so here are some more! The gravel should darken a little bit with time (the area gets dirty very quickly), and I intend on planting some low bushes around the seating area and replanting some trees in the spring. Although that is in fact a little more work to be done, the project is official completed. Again, thanks so much!

Hey everybody!

Just wanted to give a quick update with where we are with the project... we're done! Thank you all so much for the support. Although the original cost of the project was estimated to be $2,375, through the luck of some lower prices, over estimates, and some minor cuts to the project, we were able to bring the cost down to $954!

I've attached some photos so you can check out all the hard work the volunteers put in, and so you can see how your donation was used. Thank you all so much, as this project could have never been done without you.

Ethan, this is a worthwhile project! Many people will be able to enjoy what you and the Scouts are doing to renovate this little park. We are proud of you for continuing to work for Eagle Scout--many want it, but few work for it!
