Snohomish Scout earns Eagle rank
Tyler C. Hoff achieved the Boy Scouts of America rank of Eagle Scout on Sept. 17.
Earlier this summer, Tyler planned, organized, and completed his Eagle Scout project by constructing two pedestrian walkways in Hill Park in Snohomish.
The project required Tyler and his team to lay down 4-by-4 timbers, use rebar to hold them in place and then spread gravel to reduce slipping at the entrance and then use cedar playground chips in between the 4-by-4 timbers to complete the walkways.
These new pathways allow easier access from the street into the park for all of the neighborhood families.
