Troop 24 – Attleboro MA

Proudly representing Boy Scouts of America (BSA) in South Attleboro, MA

Matt Chin’s Eagle Project

Life Scout Matt Chin was able to complete his Eagle Project one day earlier than expected thanks to good coordination and plenty of volunteer help.

Matt’s project focused on one area of Capron Park that needed attention.  Matt decided to repair and re-paint some of the damaged picnic tables near the playground.  He also built a raised garden surrounding a utility box.

After raising funds, getting donations, and organizing volunteer help, Matt planned on working Friday, Saturday and Sunday the weekend of September 18th.  Getting the work done was complicated by the new safety guidelines imposed during the coronavirus pandemic.  Masks, social distancing, and limited numbers were some of the added requirements for this project.

Matt was pleasantly surprised when the project came to completion on Saturday afternoon, one day earlier than expected.

Fly-Fishing Merit Badge

For the past few weeks, some of the scouts have been working on the Fly-Fishing Merit Badge with John Stein. One of the requirements of the merit badge is to make your own lure. Mr. Stein contacted the Bear’s Den, a local fly-fishing shop in Taunton, Massachusetts, and they contacted local fishermen who volunteered to teach the scouts the art of lure making.

 

 

Each scout made 3 or 4 lures under the guidance of talented fishermen. The results were great as everyone learned quickly.

Big thanks to the fishermen, the Bear’s Den, and Mr. Stein, who were a great help.
