Eagle Scout breaks ground on new pavilion

N-Groundbreaking-Galloway-and-Conley

By Judy Reed

Sixteen-year-old Kevin Galloway hit a new milestone in his Eagle Scout project last Friday, when he held a ceremonial ground breaking for the new 20×36 pavilion that will be built in Morley Park, behind the Cedar Springs Museum.

The sophomore at Cedar Springs High School has been working on the project for two years. He originally wanted to repair the gazebo that used to be in the park. However, it was deemed structurally unsafe, and torn down, so Galloway had to start from scratch. The community rallied around Galloway’s project, and he was able to raise $18,500 to fund the project. Several business people in the community are also working with Galloway on the project.

“I want to thank the City of Cedar Springs and the community for their encouragement and support,” remarked Galloway.

He said that the 20 x 36 pavilion would add endless possibilities of different uses in the park. “I can vision many family and community events here in the future. The pavilion, with its maintenance free design, handicap accessibility, and capacity to hold 10 picnic tables, should serve this community well,” he added.

Galloway said that the pavilion kit is on order, and should be here in six to eight weeks.
