Message from your President
HELLO EVERYONE! Happy Spring, 2015!
The Eagle Scout Association has a busy spring in store, as seen by the upcoming events!
I hope you can join us for the Spring Service Project. We will be running electricity to, and wiring lights in, the Walz Pavilion near the Beckett Cabin, adjacent to the Scoutcraft Field. We can sure use your help...and don't worry if you are not an electrician kind of guy.... We will have lots of different jobs for everyone! Come and help out, and enjoy the day with fellow ESA members.
In the 68 years that the ESA has been working to support Scouting in the Greater St. Louis Area Council, we have conducted countless service projects, and constructed many large additions to the GSLAC camps; Beaumont Council Ring, Beaumont Chapel, Swift Pavilion, EAGLE Range shotgun shooting sports facility, to name a few. And as you know, these activities require $$. Over the last 24 years the ESA's signature fundraiser has been the Annual Golf Tournament. We thank all those who have participated in the golf outing, and offered contributions to the event. Without this event, we would not have been able to fund the activities we have undertaken.
We would sure like to see an increase in ESA members participating in the Annual Golf Tournament. It is your opportunity to come out and enjoy a day of golf with your friends. If you do not have a foursome... no worries! We will set you up with others and you will have a great time. And... If you cannot come out and golf, please make a donation as a Hole Sponsor, or a donation at a higher level. One way or another, please participate so we can continue to perform the projects that are so helpful to the camping experience and the Eagle Trail.
2015 Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner
May 6, 2015 is the 2015 Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner. Again this year we will be helping with the event by hosting a pre-dinner reception for the Eagle Scouts. Please contact Roger McFarland, Roger.McFarland@HOK.com to volunteer for the reception, and then join the ESA at the Recognition Dinner honoring the Eagle Scouts and Michael and Noemi Neidorf.
Don't forget the ESA Annual Meeting May 19, 2015. Click on the Event tab in the upper right of this page and sign up today. Fellowship, barbeque, and a little business!!!
Yours in Scouting,
Steve Chesnut, President
Eagle Scout Association of Greater St. Louis
