COOPERSTOWN – Charles Gannon’s Eagle Scout project began reaching fruition this morning, as he and fellow scouts in Cooperstown’s Troop 1254 erected a sign at Route 28’s south entrance into the village welcoming visitors to worship at the six local churches.
A similar sign – “The Churches of Cooperstown Welcome You” – will be erected next Saturday at the Route 28 entrance from Fly Creek.
Gannon, a CCS ninth grader, designed the signs and obtained financial backing from the village’s Ecumenical Council to put them up. Medical Coaches, Oneonta, designed special brackets to secure the sign to the upright posts and donated them to the project.
The prospective Eagle Scout is son of Paul and Katherine Gannon, Cooperstown.
