Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon presented a proclamation to Matthew J. Shelvay of Hamburg in recognition of his hours of dedication and hard work to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. The County proclamation was given to Shelvay on July 24 at the Hoover Road Park Shelter, which he and his crew of volunteers refurbished for his Eagle Scout project.

 

“Hoover Road Park is a great site near the lake that is enjoyed by many families. Matthew identified the shelter as an issue and put in a great deal of time and effort to install a new roof and repaint the structure. Because of his hard work, the shelter will be safe for families and residents to use for years to come,” said Legislator Dixon. “Congratulations to Matthew on an outstanding Eagle Scout project and for achieving Boy Scout’s highest rank, a feat not easily accomplished.”

 

A member of Boy Scout Troop 400, sponsored by SS Peter and Paul School, Shelvay also serves as a Junior Leader of the Troop. He has earned 39 merit badges, along with the admiration of his fellow Scouts and leaders. Shelvay is enlisted with the U.S. Navy and will be leaving for basic training next year.
