Eagle Scout Kiosk Project Will Let Visitors Know All About Events at Lasser Park


Miles Williams, future Eagle Scout


BLOOMING GROVE - This year the Town' Board eagerly took on sponsorship of local Boy Scout Troop 316, and they are glad to have the opportunity to support a new project taken on by Miles Williams, who will be undertaking this project to earn his "Eagle Scout" status. After researching alternative kiosk companies, he chose one that is both attractive and large enough for the significant information needs of expansion of Lasser Park in the Town's hamlet of Salisbury Mills on Station Road, just off Route 94. The Park includes numerous sports fields, including the WYCFL (Washingtonville Youth Cheer & Football League), recreational activities for the Town's Summer Camp Program and a newly constructed Senior Center that will open and be holding events this coming Winter. A sprawling site of grass and fields, it also offers distant views of the Schunnemunk Ridge.


Town Supervisor, Rob Jeroloman, and Highway Superintendent Wayne Kirkpatrick immediately reassured Miles that they will be happy to assist. For instance, Jeroloman said the Highway and Building departments have equipment to help dig the holes for the supports and will be much more efficient as well as safe in getting the job done. They have a jet spray that will dig the holes in minutes, and ensure that they are deep enough to secure the large kiosk frame. Kirkparick added that they also have all the tools that will be needed for assembly.

Miles gave a speech to the Board members, describing what his design and fundraising and building responsibilities will be during the project. This will include numerous fundraising events to pay for the kiosk itself, which comes packaged and with significant assembly required. He will also be looking for fellow scouts to help him with both the fundraising and assembly.


Future Kiosk for Lasser Park

Given the size of Lasser Park and large number of activities already going on, and growing, the kiosk chosen, is one of the vry best and biggest available. And so you will be seeing Miles and his Scout brothers offering bake sales and other creative fundraising events to reach the $7,300 that it costs. So, keep an eye on the Courier Journal, as we will be helping to promote the project so that Miles can add that Eagle Badge, and visitors to Lasser Park will have an easy time locating the events they want to participate in, and seeing notices about what will be coming that is new, interesting and fun at the Park


Miles will be going to the Boy Scouts of America .Council this week, to get permission for the project to move forward. We wish him safe travel, a "Yes" decision, and all the help he needs to get the kiosk up, and maybe a small circle of flowers in the Spring, with a few stepping stones around it.
