Elijah (Eli) Eisen, a member of Troop 1, from St. Mary Catholic Church in Appleton, WI, completed his Eagle Board of Review on April 18, 2022.
His project constructed a deer fence for the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, Fox Cities campus in Menasha, WI. In his words, “The community garden was complaining that deer were jumping over their small fence and eating all of their crops. My project was clearing surrounding bushes, shrubs, and other plants that surround the old fencing so we could place the new one. My troop patched a ditch so we could expand the community gardens, and lastly, we built the fence. Luckily, we got a hold of a professional company that makes deer fences — called Deerbusters. They are located out of Waynesboro, PA. Fortunately, we had enough donations to purchase the fencing and help from Stronghold Fencing & Construction. I just wanted to give a quick shout-out to my Scoutmaster, Matthew Saindon, and a shout-out to Rose Marie Lewis, for introducing my Eagle Scout Project to me.”
His Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held April 20, 2022.
