Bay Scout's Eagle project fundraiser coming to Bay Days

I'm back one last time with my most exciting article yet, part three of my new crusade to remodel Bay United Methodist Church’s youth group room as my Eagle Scout project starting July 3! 

Achieving the rank of Eagle Scout takes a great commitment. Only four out of every 100 scouts achieve Eagle Scout. To reach this level, an Eagle Scout project needs to be accomplished. The project has to impact the community in a positive and lasting way. I know that my project will help teens in need come to Christ through a newly remodeled youth group room that will be fully functional, inviting and inspirational to newcomers.

In my last article, I told you that I was training for the Cleveland West Road Runners Bay Days 5-Mile Race, on July 4 in Bay Village, where I will be “Running for Jesus” to raise donations. Now that my training is almost complete, and “Dillon’s Duck Race” (my fundraising booth) is almost finished, that can only mean one thing: the Bay Days Carnival is almost here! All funds collected during both “Dillon’s Duck Race” at the carnival and my “Running for Jesus” fundraiser at the Bay Days race will be donated to Bay United Methodist Church. 

Donations will go toward much-needed materials for remodeling church’s youth group room. If you would like to sponsor my fundraising booth at Bay Days, you may contact me at In return for your sponsorship, I will give you advertising at my booth! Please come meet me, and other members of the Youth Group, at my booth from July 3 through July 6!

I want to give a big "thank you" to the people who donated so far. I am currently $135 dollars closer to my goal of $1,500. Unfortunately, donations are coming in more slowly than I hoped. Please donate now! I really need your help to reach my goal.

You can donate on my secured online fundraising page at Checks may also be sent to Bay United Methodist Church, 29931 Lake Road, Bay Village, OH 44140. Please put “Dillon’s Eagle Scout Project” in the memo.

Thank you to all the communities and I am looking forward to truly making a difference in the coming weeks.
