"WARN WHEN PASSING" is now prominently stenciled on the GICIA's Bike Path at crucial intervals (approximately every 200 yards).
The project was completed Saturday Sept. 22 by Liam Hugger of Boca Grande, grandson of Rick and Karen Hugger, was assisted by volunteers from Boy Scout Troop No. 198 of Rotunda.
Liam has lived in Boca Grande for seven years. He is 13 years old and in his fourth year of scouting. He is an eighth-grade student at Charlotte Academy where he is studying math, English, social studies, science and Spanish. When he's not at school or studying he likes to play golf and tennis and spend time with his friends.
Liam is working toward Life Scout level and the Bike Path stenciling service project is part of his community service requirement. Merit badges are essential to moving up in rank and Liam has earned 13 for consideration of advancement. Once he reaches Life Scout level he will then be focused on working toward attainment of Eagle Scout status.
The GICIA Bike Path Committee was considering this project as part of its ongoing safety program and Liam's service project came along at an appropriate time.
Thanks, Liam. Well done.
