Dylan Lawson - Fundraising for Eagle Scout Project

Posted on Dec 6 2018 - 7:17pm

Hello all! This is Dylan Lawson asking for your help to fund my Eagle Scout Project. I have been working towards Eagle rank now for almost 7 years and we are down to the last few tasks! I have planned, scheduled, and carried out my eagle project which was removing old bushes and edging and replacing them with bright new plants and a edging to last for years. Even though it is my project I do know it impacts the community and improves the grounds of my troop's Charter organization, and provides me with volunteer opportunities.  Please consider contributing to help cover the costs associated with the project using the GoFundMe link HERE.
