Each Eagle project is unique and is planned and directed by the Scout.  Eagle projects are a great way for Scouts to learn to work together as a team as well as enjoy fellowship and build camaraderie. And of course, the ultimate beneficiary is the public or organization that receives the benefit of the Eagle project! Below are a few recent projects completed by Troop 770 Scouts.



Scouts met at Trinity United Methodist Church on May 7, 2016, under Jack's leadership to build storage shelves for the preschool.  Some Scouts helped pre-cut wood the night before to aid in assembly.







We had a great turn out for Aric's Eagle project on Saturday morning, August 8.  Scouts built wood duck houses that were installed at Powhatan State Park on August 22nd.  

It rained a little as Scouts assembled the wood duck houses, including sides that open to clean out the houses and a screen on the inside for the baby ducks to use to climb out of the houses. The houses must be made of cedar.




Many Scouts and friends came out to help Anthony with his Eagle Project on Sunday, April 26, 2015. The weather was perfect as Anthony directed Scouts in his landscape project at Little Sisters of the Poor off Three Chopt Road near Freeman High School.

The old landscape was removed and new bushes and plants were planted. The Scouts built a great new sidewalk from paving stones and spread mulch. Anthony raised all the funds for the project and received many generous donations of materials and time and advice from some master-landscape designers!

Also, Anthony's project will be forever known for the great food that was available.  There were many left-over items from the French Good Festival that Saturday, so in addition to pizza, Scouts enjoyed ham and cheese croissants, ham and cheese quiche, chocolate mousse, and chocolate eclairs! It will be hard to beat that menu at future projects!
