A Havre Boy Scout filed his final report on his Eagle Scout project with the Hill County Park Board Monday and received praise for the results.
Nadir Greytak said his project to renovate a North Havre park, now named Gracie’s Place in honor of two of his cousins, was finished in time.
When board chair Steve Mariani asked if the completion came close to any deadlines, Greytak said it had — the project had to be finished before his 18th birthday, and finishing placing the gravel there just made it.
“It was pretty close, ” he said.
“The night before, ” added his mother, Diana Greytak.
Park board member Dave Wilson, who advised Nadir Greytak on the project, said the dedication ceremony Sept. 25 also was a success — more than 100 people came to the ceremony.
Greytak named the park in honor of his cousin Grace Gibson, who died at age 8 after battling leukemia, and another cousin, Grace Loftus who lives near the park and has played there for most of her life.
Greytak’s project involved more then 1,500 hours of work, collecting donations and applying for grants, ordering equipment and parts and gravel, and coordinating work at the park.
Diana Greytak said he will be honored at his Eagle Scout ceremony Sunday, Oct. 16, at 2 p. m.
Mariani congratulated Nadir Greytak for his work.
“We are really proud of you, ” Mariani said. “What a great birthday present. ”
