Please Help Eagle Scout Project for Rehoboth Fire Department


January 15, 2018

Dear Rehoboth Residents,

My name is Michael Koussa from Rehoboth, Massachusetts, currently a Life Scout serving in Troop 3, North Dighton. My ten year long journey in scouting is now at the point where I am working toward earning the highest and most honored rank in Scouting, that of Eagle Scout.

For my Eagle Scout Project, I have chosen to help the Rehoboth Volunteer Fire Department. I have been given the task to locate the final resting places of deceased Rehoboth Fire Fighters so that we can pay tribute to them by placing a memorial grave marker and firefighter memorial flag at their gravesite. I will also be enhancing the current firefighter memorial at Station Three on Pleasant Street by adding a memorial bench, pavers, and various plantings.

This is where I will need your help. It is a big project that will require many hours of labor and approximately $1,500.00 for the flags and grave markers alone, as well as the cost of materials needed to update the Rehoboth Fire Department Station 3 Memorial. As part of my project, I am required to request donations to fund materials necessary for this project. Any financial assistance you can offer to help me with my Eagle Scout Project, in conjunction with the Rehoboth Fire Department, will be greatly appreciated. No amount is too small, and any funds remaining after the project is finished, will go directly to the Rehoboth Fire Department for upkeep of this project.

Checks should be made payable to the Rehoboth Fire Department and it is important that you write Eagle Project in the memo. I thank you in advance for anything that you can contribute to this worthy cause.

With Gratitude,
Michael Koussa
Life Scout
Troop 3, North Dighton
