Rotary Club of Goleta Contributes $500 to Eagle Scout Project
The Rotary Club of Goleta on Tuesday presented $500 to Patrick Konkol for his Eagle Scout project.
Konkol has taken on a project with the purpose to install 50 trail signs and posts (4-inch-by-4-inch-by-6-feet) that need to be carried by Scouts to various trail points at the project’s site. By his plan, he is involving his Troop 105, Troop 26, a weblos den from Pack 36, a youth group at church and whoever he can recruit to join in this ambitious community project as guided by the Santa Barbara Trails Council under the guidance of Ray Ford.
By his effort to stain and polycoat the signs, Konkol will be saving more than $2,000 to the Midland High School Trail Project and the labor costs of installing 50 trail signs.
Information about this project can be found on the Internet by Googling “Santa Barbara Trails Council.”
Konkol gave an outstanding presentation on Tuesday to the Rotary Club of Goleta in which he described his project to install trail signs and posts to help direct hikers in the backcountry of the Los Padres National Forest.
As always, the Rotary Club of Goleta is helping the community in a variety of projects, and helping Konkol with his Eagle Scout project is just on the many ways Rotary reaches out.
