Boy Scout Trevor Fritz, 16, just completed his Eagle Scout Project. Trevor is a junior at Glendale High School and has been a member of Troop 125 in Glenoaks Canyon for five years. On Oct. 30, with the help of his troop, he installed two commercial-quality 8-foot park benches at Seven Trees Plateau, located about a mile above Brand Park.
There is no vehicle access to Seven Trees Plateau, so the logistics of getting all the work materials to the site was quite challenging. The success of this project was due to the help of many people who all came together and lent either their expertise, helping hands or financial support.
Trevor began working with Jeff Weinstein and Dave Moreno of Glendale Parks and Recreation about a year ago. After developing the idea, they needed to address financing the project. Some friends donated money, plus Trevor held a couple of fundraising movie nights, and also held a few Saturday afternoon snack stands, which helped him earn a good portion of the funds. His final funds were provided throughdonations of Johnny Harrison from Lexus of Glendale and also from Glendale Parks and Open Space Foundation.
