Alex's Eagle Project entailed the design, construction, and installation of a faux well and grain bin to conceal two unsightly septic inspection ports at the Bouman-Stickney Farmstead in Readington Township, NJ. Governed by the Readington Township museum committee, the 18th century farmstead is used for educational living history experiences such as school field trips, cultural events, community demonstrations, and private parties. With the septic inspection ports concealed, the Farmstead house has a more period appropriate look. The project required a total of approximately 335 hours to complete.

Richard's Eagle Scout Project was conducted at the Blue Army Shrine located in Washington, New Jersey. The project was completed in the Stations of the Cross section of the property. This area is a winding path through dense vegetation with fourteen crosses set-up for visitors to view. While visiting the area many people stand in front of the crosses and pray for a moment or two before moving on to the next cross. This project consisted of clearing the vegetation around the area of the crosses to help make them more visible for viewers. In addition, fourteen benches were built to be placed in front of each cross providing a place for prayer. This gave the area a cleaner feel and also opened up the area giving a better presentation of the crosses.

Jeremy's Eagle Scout Project was to design and build a storage shed to hold sandbags for the Clinton Fire Department.
Downtown Clinton is prone to flooding during heavy rains and the Fire Department had a large number of sandbags but no place to put them. The new shed greatly expanded the dry storage capacity of the Fire Department and provided easier access to the bags in bad weather. This project involved laying a concrete foundation, constructing and painting the shed, re-bagging all the old sandbags, and cleaning up and repainting an existing shed.
Jeremy manage over 30 volunteers who contributed more than 200 hours of volunteer work to complete the project. He ran multiple fundraising events to fully fund the project

Spenser's Eagle Scout Project consisted of refurbishing and repainting the interior of one of the shower houses at the Baptist Camp and Conference Center in Lebanon, New Jersey.
Planning begin in March 2015 when Spencer first reviewed the site. Work began in October 2015, though work was expected to be completed during one month, unexpected changes and holiday delays resulted in work days scheduled into February 2016, for a total of 288 man-hours.
An example of one unexpected change occurred when Spencer realized that one of the stall walls had never been secured to floor during initial construction, resulting in unstable stall wall. Spencer decided to take extra effort to secure the stall wall to the floor so that the job would you be refurbished correctly.

Hunter Vogel

2016

Hunter graduated from North Hunterdon High School and is a member of the class of 2020 at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Congressman Leonard Lance nominated him to the Service Academy. He is majoring in Economics, is the First Sergeant of his company, active in the Scoutmaster’s Council and plans to branch into the Infantry.

Hunter's project was performed to beautify the back entrance to the Annandale Reformed Church. Planning began in 2012 and the work was executed in August 2015. With the help of fellow Scouts, Scout parents, and friends, Hunter replaced the 20-year old path made of paver bricks with a larger and more aesthetically pleasing walkway leading from the sidewalk along Beaver Avenue to the back door. The pathway was expanded by approximately 40% and the surrounding area was complemented with new landscaping, including colorful flowers, bushes and a large teak bench. The inadequate exterior lighting was replaced with two brighter lamps to illuminate the walkway. The entire project was financed by selling custom-engraved bricks. This allowed Scout families, members of the congregation, and many others to leave a permanent imprint at the Church, which at the time was celebrating its 150th year. Hunter raised, managed and accounted for over $4,000 during the course of the project.

2014

I was a Boy Scout in Troop 288 from 2007 to 2015, earning my Eagle Scout award in the early months of my final year in Scouting. Before joining Troop 288 I was in Cub Scout Pack 1989, and carried over into the troop alongside many of my longtime friends. Within Troop 288 I served as Assistant Patrol Leader and Patrol leader for the Owl and Pedro patrols. My favorite experiences as a Scout were going to week-long camps such as Trexler and Frontiers Camp. I am currently pursuing a career in TV Broadcasting out of college, and although most of my time is spent in cities far from the wilderness, I nonetheless treasure and practice all the skills, lessons, and abilities that Troop 288 taught me.
My Eagle Scout project involved the cataloging of every individual grave site within Rural Hill Cemetery in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey. The cemetery contains over 2,000 graves, and is still actively being used today. No formal records existed of the cemetery, so i decided that my Eagle project would be to create a modern and highly detailed record of every grave and the exact location of each grave for the public to use. I organized large teams of volunteers over 3 separate workdays to painstakingly take inventory of the geographic location of each grave, as well as the names, birth dates, death dates, and military status found on every stone. I then took another several workdays to enter all of this information into an online database called Namesinstone.com, which helped generate a map that can be viewed and searched by anyone with an internet connection. The process was extremely tedious, but tremendously worthwhile. I learned countless lessons about history, patience, and leadership, and I feel that this project actually made a very positive impact on everyone who has had some family member buried in the cemetery.
