Madison’s Newest Eagle Scout

FullSizeRenderCaleb Isaacson, shown here in full Eagle Scout regalia, was the honoree at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor held May 20 at the American Legion Hall in Madison. Caleb’s project was the beautiful trail kiosk and landscaping at the Webster Point Road end of the Hammonasset trail section. Caleb’s mentor for the project, Madison Trailmeister Perry Rianhard, commented, “Caleb’s carpentry skills are amazing for one so young. I learned a lot from him, and he was a delight to work with.”

Caleb is the fourth Eagle Scout and third member of Madison Troop 491 to work toward the Eagle Scout designation with a project for the trail. Eagle Scouts have completed trail projects in East Haven and Branford as well, and younger scouts have helped a great deal with trail clearing, building, and clean-up. Their creativity and hard work enhances the trail immeasurably.

East Haven Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

The ribbon cutting ceremony and walk on May 11th to celebrate the opening of the newly constructed Shoreline Greenway Trail in the beautiful Farm River State Park was a great success! We could not have asked for better weather, or a nicer group of people!

The ceremony was kicked off with a welcome speech by East Haven, SGT Chairwoman Barbara Brow, and comments from East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr., and Laurie Giannotti, coordinator of DEEP trails and greenways program. Construction of the trail was funded by a recreation trail grant from DEEP and designed and built by Timber and Stone LLC.

The trail connects users to nature and is safe for walking and biking. It connects by way of Pevetty Drive to the built Shoreline Greenway Trail at the D.C. Moore School property. We invite East Haven residents and members of our surrounding towns and communities to enjoy this new multi-use trail. Thanks to all participants who supported the event and made it a memorable morning.
