The Virus Can’t Ground an Eagle

As our regular readers know, the capstone of a Scout’s journey to the Eagle rank is to complete a service project that benefits the local community. Normally that entails a significant challenge – selecting an idea, writing up a proposal and getting it approved. That’s before anyone shows up to help!

This summer has been extra challenging for many families here in Chicago and around the country dealing with virus-related changes. That also impacted Scouts planning and carrying out their Eagle projects. But at least one member of Troop 79 managed to complete his. Read on for Oscar’s summary below:

I would like to give a big “thank you” to everyone who showed up to help complete my service project this weekend. Despite the heat, masks, and hiccups along the way, we were able to complete all six stands for Old St. Mary’s (and they look great!). I want to give a specific shoutout to the following people:
Colin G.
Sawyer M.
Chris C.
Max F.
Mr. Fischer
James K.
Colin N.
Davu H.
John Paul P.
Mr. Martin
Brady M.
Again, I really appreciate you guys volunteering, as well as your hard work.
