Mahwah NJ, Noah Brown of Mahwah Boy Scout Troop 50 dedicated his Eagle service project to help the Mahwah Historic Preservation Commission! Noah and his fellow Scouts spent well over 50 hours hand scrubbing and sealing the stairs at the Old Lutheran Cemetery on Moffatt Road, installing slip resistant treads, cleaning up the massive amount of trash that accumulates along the road (as you can see from the “before” image), weeding, and planting flowers.

  1. When I was a Boy Scout our favorite trip was to Camp Gaw.

  2. Good work fellas!

  3. Well Done Men!!

  4. It’s refreshing to see youth doing something constructive to help their communities instead of kids who are out there stealing cars and breaking into homes.Good work guys. I’m sure you make your parents proud.

    1. As an Eagle Scout parent, I can tell you a lot more goes I to these service projects than people know. The Scout has to find an entity/agency willing to work with them, if it is a Village related projects they may have to present it to the Council for acceptance and resolution, if it involves digging they will have to request and get utility mark-outs, they have to fundraise to buy the supplies or find a third-party donor, they have to write up the plan and present it to a mentor and then a Scout Council, they have to find volunteers and then lead the volunteers through implementation. And then present the finished product. And they have to document all of this. It’s a lot more complicated than most people think.

      So thank you Eagle Scout Candidates for taking on these service project.
