Eagle Scout Restores Plaques at Pet Cemetery

News & Updates

      Hunter Endrikat of Boy Scout Troop 477 has earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Hunter recently completed his Eagle Scout Project at the “Resting Paws Pet Cemetery” on Restdale Rd. in Chester, NY.

      Scouts from Troop 477 and other volunteers, under the leadership of Hunter first

cleaned the entire cemetery of leaves, branches and storm damage. They then collected from the Warwick Valley Humane society over 100 bronze plaques from damaged pet graves on the site. Many of these markers date back to the 1940’s and were damaged and destroyed over 20 years ago when removed from the cemetery because of development.

      The restored plaques were combined into two large stone and cement memorials on the

site and a walkway was added. The memorials were presented to the Warwick Valley Humane Society on Sept. 9. Suzyn Barron, President of the Humane Society, was grateful for the completion of the project. The Warwick Valley Humane Society owns the cemetery and they have been looking to restore and improve this site for more than twenty years.

      The Endrikat Family would especially like to thank Rustic Contracting and Project Supply for their generous support of this project. Hunter is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Brian Endrikat of Florida, NY and his older brother, Justin, is also an Eagle Scout. Hunter will be presented his Eagle Scout Rank in a ceremony on Sat., Feb. 29 at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church in Greenwood Lake. Boy Scout Troop 477 is chartered by Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church in Greenwood Lake and the Troop wishes to thank the church for their continued support.
