While just straightening cemetery markers does not sound too Eagle
worthy a project, such may depend on the historical significance of the
cemetery, and the amount of work involved. One Eagle in our Troop
repaired retaining walls and landscaping at one of Atlanta's oldest
cemeteries. The project was well received and appreciated by
the "historical" community.
While doing genealogical research, I found a reference in a book to
an archeological/genealogical survey of historic cemeteries in
Gwinnett County, GA that was done by a Life Scout for his Eagle
project. His research will benefit people (such as myself) for many
years to come!
I agree that typical Blood drives are not
Eagle worthy projects.... and so does our District Advancement
Committee..... a blood drive proposal would have to be "special"
in some way to get our advancement committee's approval.
Just some thoughts.....
