Letter To The Editor: Local Scout Seeks Assistance
A Member of Boy Scout Troop 75 is asking residents for help as he works toward reaching the rank of Eagle Scout.
My name is Nicholas Frediani and I am a member of the Cranford High School Marching and Jazz Bands. I am also a Life Scout with Boy Scout Troop 75, which is sponsored by The Cranford United Methodist Church. I am currently working toward earning my Eagle Scout Award.
A large part of becoming an Eagle Scout is to perform a service project. For my service project, I have chosen to renovate the Cranford high school band room. The band room is in great need of renovation and many people, including the band director, would be very happy to see this accomplished. As a member of both bands, I spend a lot of time in the band room. I have made great friends as a result of band, and have wonderful memories that will remain with me forever. For these reasons I wanted my Eagle Scout project to benefit the band in some way.
Three main issues are: the old carpeting, the poor paint job, and extra equipment laying around the room.
For my Eagle Scout Project I will:
a) Replace the existing carpet in the room
b) Repaint the walls of the entire room
c) Build and install a shelves to hold the extra equipment
An Eagle Scout Project needs to benefit a community and the Scout should be passionate about it. This project will benefit not only the existing band members, but also any incoming members for years to come. My passion for this project is unquestionable.
In order to complete this project I need to raise $5,000. I am asking you to consider making a tax deductible donation in order to help me achieve this goal. If you wish to make a donation, you can send a check payable to: Boy Scout Troop 75 and mail it to Nicholas Frediani, 12 Dartmouth Road, Cranford, NJ 07016. Every little bit will help!
Earning the rank of Eagle Scout by giving back to something from which I have gained so much is a challenge I look forward to. Thank you for your consideration in helping me achieve this goal.
Nicholas Frediani, Life Scout
