THE HSOV dogs and their volunteer walkers now have a fantastic walking path thanks to an enterprising young man, Devin Aufdenkampe, who had the vision and created the path as his Eagle Scout Service Project to earn the rank of Eagle Scout.
Devin did the design, planning, fundraising/getting donations and implementation along with the help of his fellow boy scouts, troop leaders, and his parents (Mr and Mrs. Craig Aufdenkampe).
The project was successfully completed on Saturday, May 13 2017. These random photos were taken as the work began and continued throughout the day. We love the twin benches at the cul-de-sac at the end of the trail (complete with landscaping and a nice shade tree)
The walking path begins at the bench adjacent to the parking lot, winds its way down the hill amid the Washington County Home’s cornfields, and ends near the House of Hope/County House Road. The twin benches at the cul-de-sac provide a peaceful setting for one-on-one time with shelter dogs before returning to the shelter. And there is a great view of the beautiful white County Home barn in the distance
The HSOV will be hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sunday May 21st at 3:00pm to officially recognize and thank Devin Aufdenkampe for the successful completion of his Eagle Scout project and to officially open the path
We will have a cook-out for those in attendance and invite you to join us that afternoon.
