About six years ago, Zachary and I sat down and looked at what it would take for him to earn the Gold Medal of Achievement in Royal Rangers...
I'm thrilled to say that on Saturday he finished his last requirement! Whoo-hoo!!!!
(it is similar to becoming an Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts) It was a long time in coming....
For his last merit, Zachary was required to plan and supervise a community service project. He chose to make his project helping an elderly neighbor of ours who needed some work done on her house. He wrote letters to Low*s, Home Dep*t and Sherw*n Williams and talked to the managers in each store about his project and they graciously donated all the materials he needed! Yay!
The other Rangers and commanders in his class all came to help him and we had a fun day of it and our neighbor got her socks blessed off!
Thankful to be a Ranger family and so very proud of Zac!
(next time I'll tell you what I served all those sweet guys because I just love cooking!)
