Troop 64 Scout, Greg Barth, achieves Eagle Rank

Gregory Barth was promoted to the rank of Eagle Scout by his Eagle Board of Review at a meeting led by Pam Fosnes of the Pacific Skyline Council on January 18, 2018 in Redwood City.  Greg’s Eagle Project was to re-build the wooden stairs on either side of the large double sliding board at the Ladera Community Church Preschool – the very slide he had played on in his own preschool years at Ladera.

Funding was provided by members of the Ladera Community Church and by Troop 64 parents and scouts. Greg recruited fellow Scouts and high school friends to help in the project including Scouts Alec Vercruysse, Dominic Constantz, Weston Bourgeois, Conrad Morhenn, Jeffrey Frenkel-Popell, Alex Koop, Edward Horn, and Nick Zamboldi. 

Greg was mentored in the design and construction techniques by Troop 64 double Eagle parent Phil Bourgeois, who made his home wood shop available for use by Greg and the project team, and who loaned out tools to the construction site. Troop 64 parent Dale Koop also loaned out his compound miter saw to the construction site. Greg had assistance from his parents Phil Barth and Leslie Field-Barth in acquiring and transporting lumber and other supplies, loaning out more tools, teaching some carpentry tricks, and providing snacks for the crew. 

Gregory’s fundraising was so successful that money was left over and was donated by Gregory to the Preschool at the end of the project, and Gregory was honored by his former preschool teachers,  who thanked him at the church and gave him a thank you card from the current preschoolers who now enjoy the safer, better-looking steps.

Congratulations Greg!
