Therrien completes Eagle Scout project, benches for Vergennes Residential Care
VERGENNES — Christopher Therrien of the Vergennes Boy Scout Troop 539 completed his Eagle Project by making and donating two benches to the Vergennes Residential Care Home on North Street in Vergennes on April 6. The project was the culmination of months of work by Therrien and his volunteers in seeking material donations, developing plans, organizing the work, and arranging the donation time.
Therrien has been an active scout in the Vergennes area since he began as a Tiger Cub Scout in first grade. Now a freshman at Vergennes Union High School, he has been active in the scouting program for almost nine years, and actively volunteers to mentor elementary age scouts.
Therrien is also a Black Belt in Tae kwon do, is a certified SCUBA diver, is a member of the Vergennes High School Cross Country and Track & Field Teams, and maintains honor roll level academics.
When donating the benches Therrien said, “I hope the residents of the care home can use these benches to spend time outdoors and enjoy the summer music in the park.” Therrien will be seeking approval to the rank of Eagle Scout the later this year.
