My Eagle Scout Leadership Project with my volunteer team members was to construct six redwood benches. Two benches were placed in front of the parking spaces in the parking lot and four benches in back of the main building. My hard working team members and I dug the holes to place the post anchors, mixed and poured the cement, cleared weeds, cut and screwed down redwood, drilled many holes, sanded, painted and finally put ground cover down. We each took pride in every step of construction and wanted the six benches to be sturdy and last a long time.
This leadership project is of benefit to all the Alameda school children, visiting cub scout packs and others who visit the facility. It is open to all groups at no charge by, The Math Science Nucleus with funding from Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District. In making the benches we provided seating for the children to eat their lunches on. We constructed the bench heights to make it easier for them to sit on . My project also provided a safe place for the children to sit other than standing in the middle of a parking lot.
At this time I would like to thank the Math Science Nucleus and especially Dr. Joyce Blueford for her patience and being so very nice to me.
