Eagle projects benefit community

I am 15 years old and a Star Scout with Troop 43 in Lake Stevens. I think that the Eagle Scout projects that are done in Snohomish County positively impact the community to a great extent. As my brother, 17, and working on his Eagle, and I, have realized that the Eagle Scout projects take a large amount of time and effort to accomplish for the teenagers. They have to, in amazing detail, explain what the project is and what they will be accomplishing and how the project will better the community. Then the boy must get his project approved by the council and the county before going through with the project. These projects are a great way to improve the image of the community to tourists and even citizens of the community. I hope that my letter will help others realize the impact of Eagle Scout projects.

Thank you for your time.
