Stecker’s Eagle Scout service project revitalized birdhouses at Powers Farm Community Park

This week Mayflower Council recognizes the efforts of Maxwell S of Troop 47, Randolph, Massachusetts

As a Life Scout participating in Scouts BSA’s inclusion program, Maxwell — a 21-year-old special needs student at May Center — completed his Eagle Scout service project in December.

Maxwell worked to renovate “living accommodations for some of the winged inhabitants of Powers Farm Community Park.”

On January 3, The Journal & Sun explained:

As a previous Eagle Scout project… bird and bat houses were placed at Powers Farm, but over time the birdhouses had deteriorated. With the mentoring of Scoutmaster Henry Colageo, Maxwell improved upon the design to make them more durable by using cedarwood, which is more weatherproof, and brass hardware.

Work in the park remains a labor of love for Troop 47, and Maxwell’s efforts were bolstered by his fellow Scouts and adult Scouters.

“With guidance from Maxwell and the troop’s adult leaders, on Nov. 8 the Scouts fabricated the required parts and assembled them,” added the Journal & Sun. “Finally, on Dec. 4, the Scouts removed the old birdhouses and installed new ones.”

Maxwell is just one of the terrific Scouts in the Mayflower Council doing amazing things. Do you know a member of our community who deserves recognition in “Scouts Honor”?
