On his way to Eagle!
My baby is on his way to earning his Eagle Scout! His 10 year journey down this path to Eagle will soon pay off. For the last few months he has been cutting and killing back thick brush, just to clear a path to the site of his project. About a year ago, Cameron got wind of a community project to document abandoned historic cemeteries and decided that restoring one would be a great project that would aid in the gathering of this information. For a scout to make the rank of Eagle Scout, they must plan, oversee and execute a project that benefits his community, school, or church. He has spent a great deal of time raising money and soliciting for help with replacing foot stones, adding a monument, restoring the fence, building a bridge, asking for the assistance of local farmers and friends to remove trees and brush before the "big day", and providing food, drinks and tools for the folks that help on the day of the project. Cam has been a very busy guy for the last few months and we are SO proud of our Eagle Scout candidate...can't wait to put that bumper sticker on my car that says "Proud Parent of an Eagle Scout"! If you are interested in his project and would like to help, the "big day" is November 6th with a rain date of November 13th at Salem Baptist Church in Weeksville from 10-6 (lunch provided). For any more information please leave me a comment or email me!
