Hello Troop 998,
As I announced tonight at the troop meeting, this coming Sunday is the first of my Eagle project work days and I need some help.
I am looking for help on my Eagle project this Sunday (5/7) and the following Saturday (5/13)
Q: Why should I come help you with your eagle project?
A: You help me get one step closer to becoming Eagle, receive service hours and a free dinner! 
It's a win-win for you and me. I get my eagle project done and you get service hours and a free dinner.
Interested? Then read on...
When5/7/17 (Sunday) 2-7pm and 5/13/17 (Saturday3-6pm
Where: Dublin Heritage Center (6600 Donlon Way, Dublin, CA 94568)
What we are doing: Building a mud pie kitchen for the Dublin Heritage Center (picture attached below)
If you can come and help, please signup on the troop website so I know who's coming.
I know there's a rafting outing this weekend so you can come a little late if you still want to help out.
Dinner will be provided on both workdays. 
Also, if you are coming, please print the waiver attached and have your parent sign it. 
You will not be able to help out unless you bring the signed waiver!
We'll also have another workday on 5/13 (Saturday) from 3pm-6pm to finish up anything that we didn't finish on Sunday.
Adult help is greatly appreciated. If you want to help, please email me or signup on the troop website.
