Local Scout Donates to Cheshire Home for Eagle Scout Rank!
Local Scout, Ryan Gurney of Troop 7 Madison, has been hard at work! Ryan has been pursuing the prestigious Eagle Scout award. In 2018, he came to Cheshire Home with his uncle, Ross Newick, who served as his project Advisor asking to create several benches for our facility as part of his award requirements. We were happy to accept, and imaged the impressive project Ryan would bring to our Home.
Since then, Ryan's been leading a team who has assisted him in his project. Many from Troop 7 Madison helped, along with Ryan's mother, Sheryl Gurney, and Ryan's father and Scoutmaster, Martin Gurney. Eagle Scout, Robert Cincotta, and Ross Newick also lent a helping hand. While Ryan did have help, he worked tirelessly to create something incredible for Cheshire Home!
In late January, Ryan delivered his project with his parents and District Eagle Advisor, Kris Hansen. Ryan presented Cheshire Home with four beautiful benches and an outdoor table which included a built-in chess board. Cheshire Home's Executive Director, George Zeitler, and Director of Plant Operations, Mike Davidson, (both pictured below) accepted the generous gifts. Ryan’s project surpassed our expectations and we are thankful to have been included in such a monumental achievement in Ryan’s life.
Thank you to Ryan and his team for the generous donation! We wish you all the best in your journey to Eagle Scout!
