Community Food Pantry

Skyler Baker created a food pantry at the Methodist Church for his Eagle Scout project. This project was thought of because Skyler wanted to do something for the Methodist church in Chatham as they were the sponsors of our troop at the time. Also, Skyler knew that the community needed a pantry because of the rising cost of living here on the Cape. The pantry was designed to fit lots of food to help many and is easily accessible due to it being outside the church so it can be accessed 24/7 365 days a year anonymously instead of the old one which was in the church basement that could only be accessed when the church was open.

Riverbay Benches

Paul Carlson with the help of the Troop 71 Boy Scouts organized and led the installation of three benches. The benches were installed in May 2023 at three different locations on town property within the Riverbay neighborhood in Chatham. The benches provide a resting spot for walkers and joggers in the Riverbay community.

The benches are made of composite plastic boards and a powder-coated aluminum frame for maximum durability with a 50-year warranty from the manufacturer, ParkCatalog.

Here is a map of the three locations we have installed the benches within Riverbay, along with a map of the community.

Here are some pictures documenting the assembly and installation process led by Paul Carlson.

A special thanks to all of our donors and to the Riverbay Association for their teamwork!

Osprey Nest Platforms

The Eagle Scout project for Carlisle Nash was to build and install four Osprey nest platforms. They were installed around Chatham including along the Oyster Pond River.

US Flag Collection Boxes

The Eagle Scout project for David Van Sickle was building and placing two US Flag collection boxes. One is outside by the side door at the Brown James Buck VFW Post on George Ryder Road and the other is in the lobby of the fire station on Depot Road. When flags are weathered, they can be put in a box and the troop takes care of properly retiring the flags.

Flagpole at Scout Hall

The Eagle Scout project for Owen Van Sickle was adding a flagpole to Scout Hall at 224 Stage Harbor Road. The flagpole has a solar-powered light at the top to shine on the flag.
