Eagle Scout Project - Work Day

Please volunteer to help out Jerry Ballas in building a walkway at St. Paraskevi Church.  See details below.  Be sure to fill out the form (see link) so Jerry knows who to expect that day. 


Good afternoon Troop 214!


For those of you who don't know me, my name is Jerry and I will be beginning my Eagle Scout project work sessions. 

Please note that I will be taking all the necessary precautions concerning COVID. I will supply everyone with face masks and gloves for those who don't have. And we will practice social distancing while working.

We will be building a brick walkway in the shape of a cross in front of the St. Paraskevi Greek Church in Greenlawn. The dimensions will be approximately 14ft by 11ft. I will need help digging out the dirt and laying the sand and bricks. I will need adult help too, especially for borrowing wheelbarrows and shovels. 

The work dates will be as follows:
7/18 (Saturday) 9:00 AM   dig the base of the brick walkway. (wheelbarrows/shovels PLEASE)

7/25 (Saturday) 9:00 AM    place bricks and sand (wheelbarrows/shovels PLEASE)

We will need as many boys as possible to make the project go faster. We will provide drinks, snacks, and pizza for lunch.  Please remember that helping out at these events will earn you community service hours.

Thank you,

Jerry Ballas
