Eagle Scout appreciates help with project

I recently completed my Eagle Scout project, which was to build two large three-compartment bins for trash, recycling and used tennis balls. These were placed at two tennis courts around Glenwood Springs. The tennis balls will be sent to skilled nursing facilities for use on the ends of canes or walkers, and to animal shelters as play-toys.

I could not have completed this project without the help of many local businesses and volunteers: Lowes, Micro Plastics and Big John’s Ace Hardware for their donations and discounts on materials; John Diemoz of Diemoz Design Detailing for his design expertise and professional blueprints; Eric Pedersen and Dale Fitzgerald for their professional carpentry skills, tools and advice; and to the following for assembly: Raul Rios, Alphonse Fisher, Blake Pedersen, Louis Bini and my parents, John and Lauri Bosco.

Thanks also to Steve and Wendy Vanderhoof, Hollis and Anne-Marie Kelley and Kjell Mitchell at Glenwood Hot Springs for their donations.

This was a challenging and rewarding project that could not have been possible without everyone’s help. Thank you all!
