Now that the trees are gone, you will notice some work going on in the Northwest corner of our campus.

Alexander Stoner from Troop 3 has chosen to do his Eagle Scout Project improving the grounds here at St. John’s. Finding and planning an Eagle Scout project requires partnering with an organization, raising money, assembling equipment and materials, and recruiting fellow scouts and adults to help complete the project. Alexander has been working with Russ Van Patten and Dan Breedon to build a 36 foot Labyrinth and 250 foot long Stations of the Cross path beyond the prayer garden. The stations path and labyrinth will consist of three layers (weed barrier cloth, road aggregate, and decomposed granite).

The project starts this Saturday, October 7, from 8 a.m. – noon If you want to get involved, we could probably use additional tampers and gravel rakes …. or feel free to stop by to watch the chaos and provide moral support to these young people. Thanks to Troop 3.

The projects are being funded by a $1,500 grant from ECW and one of our parishioners.  If you want to make a donation for “extras”, please put Eagle Scout Project in the memo line of your check.
