Eagle Scout Project - Peter Kraszulyak - Oct 28-29

Posted on Oct 18 2017 - 10:31am

Hi everyone,  I will be having my Eagle Project on the weekend of October 28-29. 

My project will take place at the Lafayette Community Garden where I will be building 1 movable bench, a 3 ft X40 ft base-rock and flagstone walkway around the garden’s chicken coop, and I will also be repairing the legs of an existing bench at the garden. 

The address of the Lafayette Community Garden is 3932 Mount Diablo Boulevard, which is located in the same parking lot as the tree lot. My project will begin on Saturday at 9:00 AM and it will go to 1:30 PM. My project will continue if necessary on Sunday beginning at 9:00 AM until finished. 

 The primary work for scouts will be building the walkway. I plan to construct and assemble the new bench at my house before the project weekend. With the bench to be repaired, I will bring the new bench parts and the scouts can assist in bolting it together. If you are available to help out, I have attached a Sign Up Genius link for my project where you can sign up. 


 Thank you very much,

If you are able, please consider donating. I have setup a GoFundMe page at https://www.gofundme.com/henry-baer-eagle-scout-project. Thank you.     I will be doing my Eagle Scout Project on the weekend of November 4-5. Project Pride is located in Oakland at 2545 San Pablo Ave. There will be a SignUp Genius with additional details out tomorrow for anyone who is able to sign up and help out.
