Eagle Project

Hello Troop 266, friends, and family,

     I have been a part of the BSA since 2007, starting as a Cub Scout in Pack 266. Now I am a Life Scout in Troop 266, and will be completing my Eagle Project this coming April 2016.

My project will benefit the West University Methodist Church, which is the primary sponsor for our troop and allows us to hold our meetings there.  Much of the current soil and grass on the church’s sidewalk on the corner of University Blvd. and Mercer St. has eroded away.  My project is to landscape and replace the current soil and grass with appropriate drought and shade tolerant grounds and shrubbery.    The labor required for this project is not an issue, however; the finances required for this project are.  Therefore, I must request your help by asking you to provide monetary support for my project in order to help cover the costs for materials and supplies. 

   Donations can be made through PayPal using the link above or by check ( made out to Troop 266 with my name written in the comment line).  Your aid will allow me to provide a great service to this community, and will benefit an organization that has been supporting scouts and scouting for many, many years.

   Thank you for your help and support,

Eagle Project 


My project is to create the Stations of the Cross and place them in the prayer garden at St. Pius X High School. I have ordered ceramic tiles from Belgium depicting the Stations of the Cross and will be building wood frames to present the Stations (as in the photo). 

My grandfather and my uncle will be assisting me with the woodworking. Once the frames are built they will be painted and stained. The final part will be attaching the frames to metal poles.


This approximate cost of the project is about $2000. Any money donations over the cost of the project will be donated to the Department of Campus of Ministry at St. Pius X High School.  All donations would be appreciated and would be a great help.  


Donations may be made via PayPal using this link below or by check payable to Troop 266.  

Thank you.
