Call for help with an Eagle Project: Donations of Time and/or Funding are appreciated

Posted on Sep 15 2021 - 4:34am

Dear Scouts, and Parents of Troop 71,

For those of you who don’t know, me my name is Sam Gilson. I was once SPL for the troop. I am about to start my eagle project. We will be assembling and burying a sprinkler system at Oak Grove School. The workdays I have planned are the 18th and 19th of September. I will send out an email later this week regarding the times of the project. I am in need of some funding as I do not have any material donations. This is the link to my GoFundMe. I would greatly appreciate any donations or help of any kind.
