Marc Farah, a Life Scout from Troop 4 La Jolla, chose the Pacific Beach Woman’s Club at 1721 Hornblend St. for his Eagle Scout project. He said he saw an opportunity to improve the century-old club by building a large wooden identifying sign near the front porch and by upgrading an old garden.
A junior at The Bishop’s School, Marc planned, organized and executed the project with the help of 12 other Scouts from Troop 4, as well as his family. Together they invested some 70 hours to complete the project on March 22.
The sign will help improve the club’s visibility and, in turn, may lead to an increase in revenue needed to maintain and enhance the historic structure. Marc raised all of the funds necessary to pay for his project through summer jobs, donations and popcorn sales.
Troop 4 was founded in 1912 and is the oldest continuously operating Boy Scout Troop west of the Mississippi River. Troop 4 is sponsored by the La Jolla Kiwanis Club and La Jolla Presbyterian Church. For more information, visit: troop4lajolla.com
