Be very careful with "fund rasing" project. Our distrcit had a
scout work with a volunteer paramedic team (like volunteer firemen)
to coordinated the distibution of flyers. The flyers publisized
the paramedics services and the need for funds to buy a new and
up to date paramedic vehicle and equipment. The project was
a huge success, the paramedics got the vehicle, the kid got
his picture in the paper, and got a scholarship from some
other YOUTH organization, as an outstanding young american!
However, the picture was not in scout UNIFORM because BSA
turned down the project, because it was a "fund raiser"!!
The scout found this out about have way into the project,
and elected to complete it anyway. He has since got his
Eagle after coordinating collection of can goods for a local
"soup ktichen" and preparing and serving meals at the kitchen.
The kid should get two Eagle badges, but I guess he is happy
with the one plus the scholarship!
District Advancement Commitee, etc.
6 Eagle Boards completed, 6 awarded
