4.    Eagles - Mayflower Council has issued a new form for Eagle Scout Candidate Letters of Recommendation - https://www.mayflowerbsa.org/wp-content/uploads/Eagle-Scout-Reference-Letter-Request.pdf

The process remains the same - candidates should print this form, and provide their references with the preaddressed envelope (all letters must be mailed to the Clubhouse) and a postage stamp.
A Life scout can request these references at any time during their Eagle scout candidacy, which begins 6 months after they've received their LIFE rank. 
If you have any questions, please let us know!
