Boy Scout Troop 4′s Scott Gordon, a rising Senior at New Rochelle High School, came up with an Eagle Scout project that people in Larchmont will appreciate. 200 fire hydrants in Larchmont are bring freshly repainted in silver and green.
Here, his mom lends a hand.
Captain John Caparelli says he is thrilled. He got the Water Department to donate paint–and with the free labor, figures it’s saving Larchmont $180 a hydrant.
Troop 4 in Bronxville includes boys and young men from Larchmont, New Rochelle, Bronxville, and other areas.
