Hello Troop 82,
As I am sure most of you know, I am Zachary Gutherman, and I am a Life Scout.I am going to be starting my Eagle Scout Project on Saturday, April 14th, weather permitting. For my project, I will be weeding and fixing up the playground located next to the Hulmeville Borough Building. The location of the playground is 321 Main Street, in Hulmeville. On the 14th, I will be starting my project by weeding the entire playground. Weeding the playground is not a difficult task, and could very easily be done by adults, older scouts, younger scouts, and maybe even siblings of the scouts.
It will definitely take the entire day to weed the playground, so I have broken the day up into two major work shifts: a morning shift from 9:30-12:30 and a late shift from 12:30 to 3:30. Even though I have made these shifts, you do not have to stay strictly in that time frame. If for some reason you have to leave a shift early or come late to one, I understand and that would be totally acceptable. You are also more than welcome to stay for the entire day of work if you choose. In order to make the work day run smoothly, I ask that everyone who comes to bring garden rakes (both metal and plastic), shovels, gloves, garden hoes, wheelbarrows, and other gardening tools so we can have a maximum number of people who are able to help at once. I am also asking that every family please brings a pack of 5 lawn bags to the playground if you can. This will give plenty of bags to use to dispose of the weeds.
Below this email is a sign up sheet for volunteering to help with the Eagle Project. I’d really appreciate if you signed up on the sheet so I can get an estimate of how many people will be attending. I’d really appreciate it if you came out to help with my project.
Here is the link to sign up to help with the project: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dByUPCsdQ1H7Nn2WfKruNYP1MX5QiBeB1wgqt3sNEW8/edit#gid=0
Thank you in advance, and I will be at Monday’s Troop Meeting to address and questions you may have.
