Scout Projects

A salute to the Scouts! For over 100 years the Scouts have held a special place in Allaire’s history and preservation efforts.

We always have projects available for Boy Scout “Eagle Projects” and Girl Scout “Gold Award Projects.” All the projects would be giving back to the community as Allaire is a non-profit organization.  We are open to additional ideas and projects.  Please contact the office at 732-919-3500 or for potential projects. Some examples are listed below:
