Truckee’s Hitchcock completes Eagle Scout Service Project
November 16, 2016
TRUCKEE, Calif. — On October 1 Life Scout Chad Hitchcock of local Boy Scout Troop 267 completed a community service project for the Truckee Library and the Joseph Government Center.
This Eagle Scout Project is one of the last requirements needed for him to complete the rank of Eagle Scout.
The project included re-welding and installing the bike rack at the Library and completing a 400-foot path on Levon Avenue, alongside the Joseph Government center for walking and riding.
Hitchcock worked with representatives from the Library and County to plan and complete the project. He also asked for donations of time and resources from the following local businesses:
Ruppert Inc. provided welding materials and knowledge in order to complete the repairs of the bike rack.
The Rock Garden provided several yards of decomposed granite and drainage rock for the path.
