Scout appreciates help with Eagle project
Placeholder Image
Editor, Manteca Bulletin,

I  would just like to publicly thank all those who helped with or donated to my Eagle project.  My project was replacing 9-volt batteries of smoke detectors in homes of senior citizens in my community, or installing new smoke detectors if they did not have one.  

I received donations from Raley’s, Costco, Jim Ridgwell of Practical Industries Inc., and David and Shellie Hoyt, totaling to around $110.  My scout troop, 441, installed the smoke detectors and replaced the batteries on March 27, 2010.  Thanks to my parents, donors, my scout troop and leaders, and anyone else who helped with the completion of my project.
