Troop 22 NEWS: Cody Hubbard Eagle Project Continues
Saturday, Nov 8th – Life Scout Cody Hubbard continues his Eagle Scout Community Service Leadership project with steadfast rigor and professional attention to detail. His team is constructing artificial habitat “bat houses” to support the creation of 3 separate bat communities (9 houses in all). Each community will involve one larger maternity house accompanied by 2 smaller bachelor houses. After construction, his team will attach each house on a 12 ft. pole (cement base) at various sites wilderness sites designated by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) management in the Rio Grande Valley.
The leadership service project is one of the final hurdles in earning the coveted title of Eagle Scout, per the directives of the National Council of Scouting below:
“While a Life Scout, plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or your community. (The project must benefit an organization other than Boy Scouting.) The project plan must be approved by the organization benefiting from the effort, your Scoutmaster, troop committee, and the council or district before you start.”
Cody has enlisted a dedicated team to assist. They’re off to a fine start with seven of the nine habitats completed. With this weekend’s fine effort, the finish line is becoming much clearer.
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.
