Eagle Service Project update from Cody – My fellow scouts were at my house on Saturday November 2nd and worked hard all afternoon to sort, count and pack all of the donated items I collected for the Veterans. Thank you all for your time, donations and help to get this part of my project successfully completed. My next step will be transporting the packed boxes and presenting them to the Jesse Brown Veterans Administration later this month. Pictures of my project are on the Troop website and at the link below: https://photos.app.goo.gl/eU9pVKgL3hbcXJAs5
