It’s far too simplistic to say that an Eagle Scout Project is an opportunity for a Boy Scout to demonstrate leadership of others while performing a project for the benefit of his community. It’s the culmination of the requirements to get there and it’s a journey that takes years.
So when Alex Callahan approached the DDRB about an accessible beautification project to highlight the area surrounding our flag pole for his Eagle Scout Service Project, the DDRB was eager to entertain his proposal. The plan is to create a wide walkway constructed of engraved bricks (available for purchase) leading to the flag pole that will include landscape accents of native Missouri plants.
Alex explained that he chose this project to reflect his patriotism and provide a visually pleasing area that is accessible to people with disabilities. He chose the DDRB knowing that his project would have a lasting, positive impact on the people the DDRB serves and those who visit our public building. The DDRB is honored to have been selected for his project.
As a requirement of his service project, Alex must raise 100% of the funds to cover all material expenses. To accomplish this Alex has set up a website link to purchase personalized engraved bricks that will be part of the constructed walkway. Bricks cost $30 per brick and allow three lines of personalization. To place an order go to http://polarengraving.com/EagleScoutProjectTroop351.
Once Alex has met his fundraising goal, construction can begin.
