The Staten Island Detachment of the Marine Corps League will be holding their next Eagle Scout service on march 30th (Sunday) at the detachment.
We missed some of the scouts due to weather and illness. Any Eagle Scout from 2013 that we missed receiving the Good Citizen Award from the League is welcome to join in at the detachment with Scouts on that date. All we need to know is their full names and, of course all parents are welcome as are leaders and small numbers of scouts.

Address is 46 Ontario Avenue (Marine Corps League Way)

Here are the procedures for applying for the Lowe’s gift cards for Eagle projects for 2013-2014.
The Lowe’s Grant process has changed. The local Council no longer distributes the Lowe’s grant to a Scout doing an Eagle Project. The cards are now sent directly to the Scout after he applies through GNYC. I have been asked to be the volunteer coordinator for this project.
This is open to all Scouts and Families.
I wanted to reach out now that we have our official Islanders Scout Night flyer. Please see attached for more information on this special offer to your Scouts and their families. It would be greatly appreciated if you forward this email/flyer along to everyone within the Scout community you are connected with.
