His scouting included weeklong camping trips to Catalina Island, Camp Wente in Willits and Camp Marin Sierra, and he served in the troop as senior patrol leader, patrol leader and quartermaster. For his Eagle project, JP planned, organized and directed the installation of irrigation, plants and bark mulch for planting beds at Valley Community Church in Pleasanton.
