Del Sol Lions support local Eagle Scout candidate

Del Sol Lion President Bulent Erol presents a check to Eagle Scout candidate Robert Francis of Del Mar Boy Scout Troop 713.

The Del Sol Lions presented a check for $250 to Robert Francis of Del Mar Boy Scout Troop 713 to help cover the cost of his Eagle Scout project. Francis, a freshman at Canyon Crest Academy, constructed an equestrian and hiking bridge in the Horse Park section of the San Dieguito River Valley. The project cost approximately $2,800 and is part of the Coast to Crest trail connecting Del Mar and Julian. Part of Francis’ Eagle Award requirement is that he raise the funds for his project in addition to involving others including scouts from his Troop to help.

Francis shared a PowerPoint presentation on how he and several scouts from Troop 713 constructed the bridge, including some of the challenges of building a bridge strong enough to hold the weight of horses. He also quipped that one unexpected learning from the project was the shelf-life of Ding Dongs — they will outlast us all!

The Del Sol Lions, part of a 135,000 member service organization, has quickly grown to the third largest Lions Club in San Diego county and is looking forward to continuing to serve those in need and youth in the north county coastal area. The Club meets the fourth Tuesday of the month from 6 -7:30 p.m. at the newly renovated Fletcher Cove Community Center. Visitors and new members are always welcome.
