Eagle Scout project completed
Submitted By City of Union City
On March 2, Kyle Ritchie of Boy Scouts of America of Troop 603/876 completed his Eagle Scout project on Railroad Ave. Less than five percent of Boy Scouts become Eagle Scouts. Kyle and his volunteers planted and staked drought tolerant and low maintenance Brachychiton rupestris trees along the right away.
This tree planting connects to several other volunteer projects along the railroad tracks done by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), The Hillview Baptist Church, Union City Work Furlough program, Irvington High School QUEST program and the Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center Promotoras.
Public Works employees Robert Vera and Frank Morales help set up and assist with Kyle's project.
