Lowe’s Impact Grant for Eagle Projects – $100

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.

Eagle Project on Saturday July 28th, 2012

Brian O’Connell of Troop 19 will be at Miller Field, at the old Airplane Hangar. It is located at the bottom of New Dorp Lane off of Cedar Grove Street.

His project is taping and painting 22 10 x 10 foot panels on the hangar and doing graffiti removal. He needs about 30 voluneers to complete the project that day.

He needs adults to do the ladder work and chemical removal of the graffiti on the concrete.

The purpose of the project is to clean the landmarked building (only one side, not all of it) and make it more pleasing to the eye for the NYC bike trail that runs past it. It was just opened up officially on July 8th.

Thank You.

The troop is based out of Our Lady of Good Counsel School, Tompkinsville.

Work on the East Shore flagpole and surrounding area was carried out under the direction of Christopher Brown, a West Brighton teen who is completing his requirements for Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Scouting.
