Dream of becoming an Eagle Scout nears fulfillment for Fowlerville teen PDF Print E-mail

By Steve Horton

Since he joined the Cub Scouts at age seven and moved onto the Boy Scouts, Joe Mayle has had the goal of eventually earning an Eagle Badge. That dream appears near fulfillment as he has completed all of the requirements and will soon be sending his application to the Boy Scout Board of Review. The Eagle Badge is the highest rank for a scout. Joe is currently a Life Scout, a rank below that level.

The 17-year-old youth is starting his senior year at Fowlerville High School next week. He is a member of Troop 323.

Among the requirements for earning the badge is completing a Community Project. To that end he worked with the Village of Fowlerville to do two improvements at the Greenwood Cemetery, both of them in the lawn area that surrounds the Memorial Cannon.

100 Women Who Care to hold meeting on Sept. 1 in Brighton PDF Print E-mail

By Karla Macelli

Call to Action: A fantastic way to support our community and potentially Livingston County Habitat for Humanity is coming up next Tuesday, September 1. 100 Women Who Care is a group of women who are interested in supporting our local community in Livingston County by contributing to local charities together as a unit to increase the impact. In a nutshell, 100 women commit to donate $100 and in one hour, collectively donate $10,000 to a local nonprofit.

We meet at 5:00 PM with the presentation starting promptly at 5:30 PM. Meetings are held at: 242 Community Church Auditorium | Brighton Campus- 7526 Grand River Avenue, Brighton.

I am looking for individuals or team members who are interested in joining this effort and support Livingston County Habitat for Humanity. Teams can be comprised of 2 (at $50 each) or 4 (at $25 each) people but please remember that a team only gets one vote. Individuals receive one vote as well. Whichever way you choose, more people means there is more of a chance of LCHFH being drawn to present and also increases our votes.
