Scout directs cleanup at St. Peter's Episcopal


September 16, 1996|By Jean Leslie | Jean Leslie,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

BOY SCOUT Jason McDuffie, member of Troop 305, recently completed his Eagle Project at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Ellicott City. Trees and shrubs blocked drivers' view of the road as they left the driveway. The front of the rectory and church needed clearing, and schoolrooms and hallways inside needed painting.

Jason directed the project, using his fellow Scouts and family as workers. The group first cleared shrubbery, investing more than 100 hours in this phase alone. Then they painted three classrooms, the hallway, and some outside doors.

By the time Jason's team finished, Saint Peter's Church members had a safer view for drivers. And members are enjoying the fresh paint.

Jason's Eagle Court of Honor will be held at 2 p.m. Nov. 10 at Saint Peter's Episcopal Church.
