Troop 22: Cadet Hellmund’s Eagle Scout Project COMPLETED!!
Saturday, October 05, 2013 – Life Scout and MMA Cadet Guillermo Hellmund completed his Eagle Scout Community Service Leadership Project today. Hellmund and a sharp team of motivated volunteers generously assisted and pushed this project across the finish line!
Around 100 work-hours went into this superb product to the benefit of Texas Parks and Wildlife. These outdoor hunting registration boxes will greatly aid TPWD by collecting data that will aid in better managing the South Texas wilderness areas.
The leadership service project is one of the final hurdles in earning the coveted title of Eagle Scout. It is required per the directives of the National Council of Scouting, and must benefit an approved community group or individual.
The team went out and installed several of these boxes at various locations in the Rio Grande Valley, under the direction of wildlife manager Mr. Sam Patten. He is VERY grateful for the superb efforts of Guillermo and team. The final product is very study and will withstand hard outdoor use for many years.
Teenage boys being teenage boys, they then decided they were HUNGRY, but wouldn’t be satisfied with a run of the mill fast food emporium. No sir. Instead, they chose the “China Wall” for a scrumptious buffet lunch, ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT! After polishing-off several refill plates each, the boys left NO DOUBT that the restaurant earned little profit from their visit.
Guillermo’s next step is completing his project book, then passing the Eagle Scout Board of Review very soon.
Troop 22 actively seeks donations or other assistance to maintain a quality program. Please contact the Scoutmaster, SgtMajor Jim Poe, at 956-423-6006×270 if you have questions about the Boy Scout program or seek to lend your support.
