Life Scout Jack Newbury, Team receive Eagle Project recognition

HARLINGEN — MMA Troop 22 Life Scout Jack Newbury recently received recognition for completion of his Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project in support of the Blue Sunday Child Abuse Prevention Initiative office in Harlingen.

Volunteer staff members of Blue Sunday and those of Team Newbury were present.

Newbury and his team designed and built an impressive three-piece indoor furniture set, consisting of a computer desk and two end tables. They also refinished the main office desk in matching colors. An on-site physical viewing finds the work is really quite stunning. More than 100 boy hours went into the project.

Life Scout Newbury presented Blue Sunday Director Janet Magee a money order for $215. This was left over from his fundraising efforts. Magee awarded Newbury a special gift in honor of his efforts. She summed up the results in one word, “fabulous.”

A follow-up reward directly afterward included two extra large Domino’s pizzas and a load of cheesy bread.

Troop 22 actively seeks donations or other assistance to maintain a quality program. Please contact the Scoutmaster, Sgt. Major Jim Poe, at 956-423-6006 ext. 270 if you have questions about the Boy Scout program or seek to lend your support.
