Stoughton Teen Fundraising for Eagle Scout Project to Beautify Park
Boy Scout Adam Lurie is selling personalized bricks to help fundraise for his Eagle Scout Project, erecting a flag pole at Frederick H. Pye Memorial Park in Stoughton. The bricks will be placed in a circle around the flag pole.
Thanks to Adam Lurie's Eagle Scout project, a flag pole will soon be erected at the Frederick H. Pye Memorial Park at the intersection of Central and Canton Streets.
With an American Flag waving from the pole, it will create a patriotic scene for one of Stoughton's most traveled roadways.
Lurie, a member of Boy Scout Troop 516, is currently fundraising for this project by selling personalized bricks to be placed in a circle around the flag pole at the park.
The bricks are $35 each, Lurie said. There are three lines at 18 characters per line available for customization.
Lurie will be a senior at Stoughton High in September. He said the idea behind his Eagle Scout project "is to bring a sense of community and patriotism to Stoughton as well as honor former Fire Chief Frederick H. Pye."
"I hope by putting up a flag pole that will fly the American flag and place bricks that carry names of families and individuals around town will bring a sense of community," he said.
For those interested in purchasing a brick or helping Lurie with his fundraising efforts, call him at 781-341-3875. The cutoff for ordering a brick is August 17.
