Hello, Troop 457: I hope that everyone is having a nice summer, and that many of us are preparing for the 4th of July.  However, just a few days after the 4th of July (on July 8th) , I am having my Eagle project.  My project is a free jazz concert to the senior citizens at the Amherst Senior Center, and serving ice cream to those seniors who attend.  There will also be donations given to the Meals on Wheels part of the ASC, to be used as "blizzard boxes" food and other supplies which can be saved and used during bad weather in the winter).  The Troop was extremely generous in its donations to the Meals on Wheels, and I'd just like to say thank you for everyone who donated. I will need more Scout volunteers to help scoop and serve the ice cream to the senior citizens (currently I have 5-6 volunteers, and I'll take anyone who is willing to help out).  If anyone else could help, that would be great, and please email me back saying who you are and that you can help with this.  Follow this link for the permission slip for anyone who wishes to join.  If you do help with this, I can sign off for service hours (I will need all servers at the Amherst Senior Center at 5:30, and it will end around 7:30, so you can get 2 service hours, along with some ice cream for yourself). The concert is from 6-7, but I will need the servers at the ASC by 5:30.  If anyone in the troop wishes to give any more donations, please bring them to the Amherst Senior Center by 5:30 as well, because all of the donations will be given to Meals on Wheels in the middle of the concert.  Thanks very much anyone, and if you have any questions please email me. YIS, Billy

My Eagle project involves running a youth day camp July 25th from 9AM to 4PM for the kids at the Boys and Girls Club Masten Clubhouse -- teaching them basic camping and outdoor skills in the hopes that the club will continue a camping program on their own. I welcome anyone who is available to help me; there is a lot to be done.

Dear Fellow Scouters: Today I visited the Response to Love Center and checked on the status of the raised gardens. They are all showing signs of new growth and the center is very positive about the future of the garden. The Center and I both wish to extend our thanks to all the people who had helped with the project. The project was building four raised gardens and painting a concrete wall at the Response to Love Center in Downtown Buffalo. Sincerely, Caleb B

Another Eagle!
