PRESENTATIONS By Eagle Scout Candidates

Tanner Ritz from Troop 61 in Victor discussed his project. He will be installing “You are here”-signs in Fisher Park. He described the signs and provided a sample sign. He is buying 10 signs from Mcallister Signs in Webster. The sign design is a color trail map of the park, with a star indicating the location of each sign. He will be installing 20 sign posts, 10 of which will have signs. He hopes to do most of the design himself. Jeff Hennick and Chauncy are assisting and will sign off on the final design of the signs. Total project cost is $500. Tanner expects to install the signs in May or June.


Ethan Davis from Troop 60 in Victor discussed his project. He will be building and installing a boardwalk in 100 Acre Woods, and also be putting ramps and railings on the existing bridge. Total project cost is $1000-1200. He will be finalizing his timeline soon, and turns 18 in July.
