IMG_3214Rishubh “Ryan” Agrawal, a member of Boy Scout Troop 925 in Orange, recently completed his Eagle scout project at Camp Cedarcrest.

Camp Cedarcrest is a non-profit organization located on Mapledale Road in Orange that provides an enjoyable outdoor experience to the people of greater New Haven area.

The project was to beautify its entrance and to create a new garden along the side of a garage. Scouts searched for various rocks in the 43 acre camp property to create stone walls.

The scouts purchased the soil, plants, and mulch thanks to the generous grant from the Orange Foundation’s Olga Fund II and Dusty and Frank Downy Fund. Without their support the project could not have been completed. 

After hours of hard work, they finished two beautiful walls.

“Our sincere thanks to Mr. Jacob Urban in guiding us towards the right spots for rocks and a crash course in making the stone walls,” Agrawal said. “I also wish to give my sincere thanks to Mr. John Wesolowski our troop leader for his guidance.”
