JJ’s Eagle project was to collect and repair bicycles for needy kids. He also taught the kids in our troop about bicycle safety, repair, and maintaining a bicycle.
One of our scout’s Eagle Scout Project involved protecting some trees from beaver damage in Sand Creek Park near I-70 and Quebec.
Nicholas’ Eagle Project was to plan, build, and stain picnic benches for Bear Canyon Elementary.
In October of 2011 one of our scouts completed their Eagle project at a church camp.
Here are some photos from that day; including around one of the projects, which involved re-enforcing the stairs on the side of a hill at a camp using fill dirt, rebar, and posts where needed.
On April 17 we went to Daniels Park, where Jared held a flag retirement ceremony. To retire a flag by burning it, you first tear it into 14 pieces. Each stripe is a piece and the field of stars is a piece. You then lay each stripe on the fire as it represents one of the thirteen original colonies. After all of the stripes have been burned you kiss the field of stars and lay it on the fire. However, remember that Boy Scouts are one of the only groups allowed to retire an American flag.
Here are some pictures from when the scouts collected the flags that were tattered or torn and needed to be retired.
The scouts from the troop created flag collection boxes to collect all the tattered and torn flags for an Eagle Project. Here is a slide show of pictures taken that night.
One of our scout’s has an Eagle project to collect tattered and torn flags, then retire one of those flags in a retirement ceremony. Here are pictures of the education night describing the flag, it’s history, and the project to collect them. There are also pictures of signing off on rank requirements and a Scout Master conference. And it was “goofy hat night” so some scouts are wearing goofy hats.
