Kevin’s Eagle Project was to tear down and refurbish the Club Board at Monrovia High School. They removed the supports, repainted the frame, replace the supports with sturdier redwood 2x4s, and then added marine grade plywood as the new background for the club logos.
The work took place over three weekends. Thanks to the support of family, friends, and fellows Scouts, Kevin was able to complete his project before school began last fall. Over 190 man-hours were logged on this project.

Clayton’s Eagle Project was to renovate the concrete trash bin areas at Ronald McDonald House in Pasadena. They demolished and removed the existing bricks on site. They then prepared the area and poured fresh concrete, to provide a walkway and storage area for the large trash bins.
The work took place over three weekends. Thanks to the support of family, friends, and fellow scouts, Clayton was able to complete his project this past November. Over 141 man-hours were logged on this project.
