Fund-an-Eagle Project #1 - Charlie Treacy

About Charlie

I am going into my senior year at STA where I participate in  football, swimming, band, and theater. I have been active in scouts for 11 years now and enjoyed the high adventure trips to both Philmont ad Sea Base. Now I am looking forward to completing this Eagle Scout Leadership Project as the capstone to my scouting experience. 

Eagle Leadership Project Overview

For my Eagle Leadership Project, I will be constructing a fire pit and seating area outside of the priest's residence behind Saint Thomas Academy. While the building had been vacant for a number of years, it is now home to a retired bishop who will soon be joined by our school chaplain.

This new gathering space will be a much-needed improvement to the property for years to come. It will increase the priests’ capacity to host events and friends, growing companionship, and enhancing camaraderie within the Saint Thomas Academy community and beyond. 

My Donations are Needed For...

Materials for the firepit, liner, ground excavation and underlayment, patio (if enough funds are raised) or mulch will surround the fire in a 14 foot seating area.  I am looking to raise approximately $2,000.  Excess funds will go to STA or a designated charity (TBD by the beneficiary).  

What's the Plan?

I have raised enough to begin excavating the top layer of grass off to form the seating area.  I  launched my first site prep session on June 19.  I am hoping to raise enough to order the rest of the materials as soon as possible, and plan to keep fundraising open until July 15.
