In my view, the SPL didn't follow up on his responsibilities. An
announcement at a COH does not constitute a committment by the PLs. This
is something that should have been dealt with at PLC where PLs could make a
committment for their patrol.
This sounds like someone's arbitrary decision to participate in a service
project. The person who makes the committment is responsible for assuring
participation and announcing that someone else is expected to participate
is not assuring participation.
Now, that said, I'd certainly ask the PL about his leadership in this
activity. My guess is he didn't see it as his responsibility since
everyone at COH, including all patrol members, heard the announcement.
