I will be completing my Eagle Project at Boulder Crest Wounded Warriors Retreat. The project is a directional sign for the main entrance at the retreat.  We will be cutting and staining the wood signs on Saturday, May 10th and setting the sign up at the Retreat on Saturday, May 17th.  I will need several Scouts to meet at my house on May 10th at noon to complete the staining.  On the 17th, I will need a few scouts to meet me at Boulder Crest at 9am to help erect the sign.
