David Havard, Life Scout with Troop 60 Mountaintop is presently leading an Eagle Scout Service Project. The Eagle Scout Service Project is the opportunity for a Boy Scout, who has attained Life Scout Rank, to demonstrate leadership of others while carrying out a project for the benefit of his community. The Eagle Project is one of the requirements to earn the Eagle Scout award. David considered several ideas for his service project. David knew that one of his ideas, a project to benefit the Luzerne County S.P.C.A, was the right choice after reading an inspiring article about this animal shelter in the Mountaintop Eagle. The Luzerne County S.P.C.A. has a continuous need for a supply of pet food and other supplies. They have a “wish list” of items that include dry and canned dog and cat food (no red dye), collars and leashes, cat litter, rabbit pellets, gerbil and hamster food, Kong toys (new and gently used), cleaning, paper and office supplies. David is the project leader for a pet food and supplies collection drive being held during the month of March 2013 to benefit the Luzerne County S.P.C.A. Assisting him with this project are fellow Scouts, Scout families, Scout leaders, friends, family and local retailers. Participating Mountaintop retailers and donation sites are Carone’s Market and P & D Pet Supply. P&D will honor a 10% discount on all items purchased at P&D that are then donated to this Eagle Scout Service Project program at P&D to benefit the S.P.C.A. David’s current Troop Leadership position is Troop Instructor. Past leadership positions he held include Patrol Leader and Senior Patrol Leader. David has completed several Boy Scouts of America youth leadership training programs. A ninth grade student at Crestwood High School, David is a member of the National Junior Honor Society and the Crestwood Key Club. He is a volunteer with the Youth Volunteer Program at the Veteran’s Medical Center Plains Twp. He is the son of Donald and Deborah Havard. Patricia Wascavage is the Troop 60 Scoutmaster and Mike Hill is the Troop 60 Advancement Chair and David’s service project coach. Troop 60 is chartered by St. Jude Church.
