HUNTER MANCINI EAGLE P[PROJECT

Posted on Sep 20 2020 - 9:41pm

A few more pictures of Hunter Mancini's Eagle project. One story that happened at Hunters project. A few hours into the project a cry for help was heard from the Knights of Columbus who had a group trimming the grass to get ready for a rosary being said on the mountain top the next day by Father Sullivan of the Immaculate Conception Church. Walter who is 97 was weed wacking near the creche and lost his hearing aid. He is the gentleman with the work vest on(has cross on it)first picture. He was so upset because he just spent $3,000.00 on the hearing aid.He was so distraught I summoned the scouts to come over and form a litter line to try and find this valuable piece of equipment. At the same time a good friend of the Troop who has done presentations for our troop and has supplied thousands of plants for our river cleanup, Bob Gregorski. Bob and his wife Anita showed up for a tour of Holy Land. We told him the situation with the hearing aid.He told us he would pray to the Angels that one of the Scouts from our Troop find the hearing Aid. As the scouts began looking I took Bob and his wife on the tour. He proceeded to tell me that the same scenario has happened to him 5 times before. One was when he and his wife were parking their car to take a hike the Appalachian trail. A women came to them and was so upset she lost her hearing aid on the trail and if they saw it could they get in touch with her. He said he prayed to his Angels and sure enough he found it on the trail miles in. He had 4 other stories but you get the point. When we finished the tour we asked the scouts if they found it. The answer was a hardy yes. Alex Mercer was the scout who found it. The second picture shows Bob Gregorski telling the scouts his Angel story. He has since given me a book about Angels to give to Alex Mercer who he felt was very interested. Another interesting story was Chase Grendzinski was sorting through bulbs for plantings that the scouts had dug up near Peace hall and he found a beautiful statue of Jesus. I am going to embed the statue into the project. It will be visible but hard to find.Some pretty amazing and interesting stuff always happens with this troop.
