UPDATE November 2004
He [Jim McGee] has been working on the project and has had adults and scouts helping him. Got final approval from the District Advancement Chairman on October 3 and the work got underway. I haven't been to the cemetery but understand significant progress has been made. Last weekend Tony Szwed met with Jim at the site and promised to use his equipment to "brush hog" the exterior perimeter along the stone wall. Also will give additional assistance.

UPDATE February 2005
Hello Richard Update news on the Eagle Project.
Jim has finished all the physical aspects of the project and tonight I expect him to present a written summary
as a part of His Eagle Scout Project.
He has prepared a booklet for the Hunterdon Historical Society, which he delivered to them last week.
I have some photographs that I would like to send to you. However, in checking through my files, I don't have your
home address. Only Tucson, AZ. Would you be so kind as to send me your address.
Also, once Jim has completed his "Eagle Board of Review" and approval to award the Eagle Badge,
I will send you a complete copy of his application together with all accompanying material, including the
booklet prepared for the Historical Society.
Total expenditures at Sergeantsville Feed and Grain - $12.00.
In April, Scouts from the Troop will follow up at the cemetery and apply "Roundup" and then plant a ground cover
(perriwinkle/myrtle). Expect the ground cover to be donated. Will purchase "Roundup" from S F & G out of the account.
Jim, Scouts and Adults did a really great job and I think you will be pleased. Expect the troop to adopt a
maintenance program to prevent the cemetery from becoming overgrown again.
Will keep in touch regarding Eagle Board of Review and Eagle Court of Honor.
Best Regards Ray PS Also would like your phone number. Thanks Ray
