The was day 1 of one of Troop 46's Life scout's Eagle Project.  This project was to build a new sidewalk to Emmanuel United Methodist Church's parsonage.

The scouts arrived in the morning, and began unloading the heavy machinery from the trailers. We then began to remove the paving stones that were in the ground via the machinery and pry bars. The Dingo carried the stones away. The adults on machinery began to dig out a pathway for the new sidewalk. While the adults did this, the youth filled in the path of the old sidewalk with the excavated dirt. Some dirt was spread in the yard of the church where it was requested by the church. In the afternoon, we built the wooden forms at the area of the sidewalk. Once the forms were in place, gravel was spread as a base for the concrete.
