Tristan Hladky’s Eagle Scout Project SOARS!

Tristan’s  Last Hope sign in a raised planter is a lasting treasure.
The Boy Scout Council insists prospective Eagle Scout ideas be sustainable. This sign is more than that. It’s the gateway by which every volunteer & visitor will be welcomed into the Last Hope Adoption Center from now on.
Tristan Hladky from Boy Scout Troop 123 in North Merrick is a student at Calhoun High School. He is also a Last Hope volunteer with his Mom Holly. Both also helped to paint our Adoption Center when it was closed to the public at the start of the pandemic last spring.
Tristan has been planning his Eagle Scout project a long time. He needed to fundraise for the supplies & the incredible PVC sign with the Last Hope logo in 3D.
Fundraising became a bigger challenge during Covid because it was not possible to hold events where people gathered. The pavers were generously donated by Fontana Concrete in Bayport.
Leadership is a crucial component of an Eagle Scout endeavor. Tristan supervised fellow Scouts and adult helpers last weekend when most the construction was done. Of course, he did lots of work too.
In addition to building the planter & erecting the sign, Tristan & the Troop cleared out the flower beds in front of Last Hope, and planted ornamental cabbage around the sign and by the door.
A plaque by the new signed identifies Tristan’s project & dedicates it to all Last Hope volunteers.
Last Hope is so Grateful to Tristan & the Troop for presenting our homeless cats & dogs with such a gift.
We are also proud of Tristan’s hard work, determination & creativity in the completion of this beautiful addition to the Adoption Center. And thrilled that such a fine young man belongs to a volunteer family & to the Last Hope family.
