"Blake's Bridge" underscores the vital role public parks and their infrastructure play in the lives of Americans, especially our children. Originating from New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, Blake Fisher took on the responsibility of restoring a deteriorating pedestrian bridge located in a township park in New Wilmington, PA. The transformation of the bridge is evident in the compelling before-and-after images.
Established in 1911, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout has only been attained by four percent of Scouts.
As a commitment to fostering a positive impact within the community, a hot-dip galvanizing facility contributed by handling the galvanizing of Blake's handrail at no cost. The galvanizer wanted to actively participate in and enhancing the well-being of the community.
Blake Fisher embraced this challenge as part of the final test in the Boy Scouts of America's prestigious Eagle Scout program. With its establishment in 1911, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout is an accomplishment attained by only four percent of Scouts. Known for its rigorous review process. This achievement involves planning, developing, and leading a service project known as the Eagle Project, showcasing both leadership and a sense of duty.
The Eagle Project, or "Eagle Scout Service Project," offers Scouts the opportunity to exhibit leadership skills while executing a project benefiting a religious institution, school, or community. Importantly, it is prohibited from benefiting the Boy Scouts of America, its councils, districts, units, camps, or having a commercial nature, or solely being a fundraising initiative. There are no strict guidelines regarding the duration of these projects. Blake’s Bridge will last a lifetime.
The galvanizer promptly approved Blake's galvanizing design and facilitated the process, providing the necessary support for this endeavor. The bridge now stands in Marti Park, New Wilmington, PA, serving its purpose within the local community.
