Caleb Short, a member of Scout Troop 79 and a sophomore at Stryker High School, spoke to the Stryker Rotary Club about his Eagle Scout Project. He is working to raise funds for materials to refurbish the playground equipment located at the First Lutheran Church in Stryker. The equipment is used by the preschool that holds classes in the church. The equipment is also used by the children of the community. Caleb told the group that he estimates the cost of materials for the project at $2,500. He has a commitment of $500 thus far towards the project, and must raise an additional $2,000. He is planning to have the project completed yet this year, and said members of his troop will be helping him with the work. The Rotary members voted to provide $300 toward the project. Caleb spoke as a guest of Stryker Rotary Member Ron Short
