Eagle Scout Project
Spring / Summer 1999, Elk Grove, CA
My project was to clean up the Hilltop Cemetery between Bond and Waterman Road in Elk Grove, CA. The Hilltop Cemetery, at the time, was considered a pioneer cemetery and a historic site. The location was overgrown with weeds, Tombstones were in need of cleaning, and In general needed a lot of maintenance. In order to implement this project I had to come up with a proposal to the Elk Grove – Comsumnes Cemetery District in order to perform work on the cemetery. The proposal had to lay out a budget for the project, the proposed dates of the project, and a basic environmental impact of the project. During the actual project, I had to supervise volunteers, organize work groups, and insure completion of work. After the project I had to write a review of the project and meet with a panel to review my project.
