This weekend, Parker Gurnett of Boy Scout Troop No. 82 will unveil his Eagle Scout project, which was created to honor first responders.
Legislator David Godfrey, chairman of the Niagara County Legislature safety and security committee, said, "Receiving the Eagle Scout is the most prestigious award to obtain. This project took the front entry area to the Warren J. Rathke Public Safety Training Facility and transformed it into a memorial dedicated to the firefighters of Niagara County and those who have lost their lives in the line of duty in Niagara County. I am honored to be able to recognize the first responders and the life-saving services they provide to our community."
Niagara County Legislature Chairman W. Keith McNall said, "We are proud of the work that Parker Gurnett and the members of Troop No. 82 put in to complete this renovation, which includes new bushes and plants, stone work and two large engraved memorial stones."
The ceremony will take place at noon Saturday at the Warren J. Rathke Public Safety Training Facility, located at 5574 Niagara St. Ext., Lockport.
