Clerk Uglis read the following proclamation into the record:

WHEREAS, Robert Durie is a 16 year old student who attends L’Anse Creuse North High School.

WHEREAS, Robert Durie’s project consisted of building a brick path that was 4 feet by 30 feet between two historical buildings door to door. He also installed another path connecting the path (from door to door) to the road which was 4 feet by 21 feet. The bricks for this project were from an original historical school building and provided by the Chesterfield Township Historical Society.

 

WHEREAS, Robert Durie from April 2, 2008 to July 14, 2008 started his project preparation. In this amount of time he put in 52 hours. He did much research by visiting the site, taking pictures; laying the path, and had to figure out how many supplies he would need to meet his challenge. He went to Lowe’s and Theut products to price the materials he would need. The total amount for miscellaneous and expenses were $336.00.

WHEREAS, Robert Durie raised enough money for this project by collecting scrap metal, pop cans, and bottles, along with money donations from his relatives.

WHEREAS, Robert Durie started on July 15, 2008 to September 1, 2008 for completion of the two brick paths. He put in 189.25 hours. He contacted the proper authorities (MISS DIG) to check for underground wires. In completing the path he kept in mind about drainage to keep it away from the building. Slag sand was spread over the area then sand tamps were used to compact the slag. Holes were drilled into the 2 x 4’s every three feet to put the stakes through. He installed bricks from corner to corner on both paths. Once all the bricks were level the joints were filled with slag by using a push broom.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE TOWNSHIP BOARD OF THE CHARTER TOWNSHIP OF CHESTERFIELD, MACOMB COUNTY, MICHIGAN;

The Charter Township of Chesterfield, Board of Trustees hereby commends Robert Durie from Troop 157 for the completion of his Eagle Project.
