Richard Page Eagle Project

It has been a while since a Troop 106 scout has worked on an Eagle Project.

I am proud to announce that Richard Page has a project that was just approved and he needs your help.

He is doing a blood drive, which will take place when most of us are up at camp (Sat Aug 9). In order to drive traffic & raise awareness to his project he will be flyering a large part of Middle Village. The info on that is below:

When: Saturday Aug 2

Where: Meet at Trinity Lutheran Church

When: 9A

Uniforms are NOT required. Volunteers (parents and siblings are more than welcome) will be given a map and will be responsible for flyering all the houses on various blocks.

Any questions direct to Richard at richardallenpage@gmail.com

These are the last steps of Richard’s journey to Eagle, and needs ALL of your support. Please make sure you are there. He also will need over 30 blood donors on the 9th, but more info will go out about that shortly.

Mike Needs Your Help!

I am writing this to you asking for your support. For a long time, running & finishing the NYC marathon has been a bucket list item for me. I recently had some health issues, which were really scary & eye opening at the same time (all is now fine). So I decided that this was going to “be the year I actually do it”.

I got blessed with an opportunity to join the Greater New York Council Marathon Team. As you may likely know, scouting has been a part of my life since I was 7 years old. The program had a huge impact on me, and 3 years ago I became the Scoutmaster of Troop 106. With my amazing team of leaders, we have grown the troop to one of the largest in Queens.

Scouting in NYC touches over 40,000 people, and provides opportunities to many that they couldn’t experience here in the city. I have committed to raising $3,000 to help support scouting in NYC. The money will go to preserve camps, help under-privileged scouts to fully participate in the program, & much more.

Will you stand with me in helping to fulfill one of my lifelong dreams while helping a program that is dear to the hearts of tens of thousand of New Yorkers?

No donation is too small and every little bit helps. If you would like to donate please use the link below: https://www.crowdrise.com/boyscoutsoanyc2014/fundraiser/mikeschulte

Thanks in advance for your time & support.
