Gray Benefits From Eagle Scout Projects

Robbie Cook and Seth Carter build benches and planters for Gray.

Gray is now a bit more beautiful thanks to the efforts of a couple hardworking Eagle Scouts!

Robbie Cook recently built two planters: one near the volleyball courts and the other near the time capsule by the Town Office.

Seth Carter built a planter with a sitting bench near the Gray Congregational Church. He also built two planters with a sitting bench near Wilkies Beach.

Eagle Scouts go through a rigorous set of guidelines that are required to complete any Eagle Scout project. The planning, development, and demonstration of leadership must be presented to the Boy Scouts of America district board. Then the scout needs to implement a plan that includes reaching out to the beneficiary of the project, propose a plan, and then present the project to the Gray Town Council for their blessing. Next steps are to acquire permits that might be needed, propose fundraising ideas, seek donations, work closely with the Town of Gray Building & Grounds Department, coordinate volunteers, buy materials, assign jobs and finally complete the project.
