Bill introduced Eagle Scout, Michael Shannon today.  Michael is a senior at Danvers High School and also plays football.  He is working on his community service project that goes towards his Eagle Scout merit badge.  The project involves raising money, organizing volunteers and creating a project that will make a difference within the Danvers community.  Michael’s project is removable handmade baseball bat racks for the Danvers American Baseball League.  There will be 6 in total and will keep the dugout neat and organized.  Monihan Lumber donated the wood and Michael recruited a number of volunteers including fellow Boy Scouts to help make this happen.
