Eagle Scout David Schloemer teamed up with CST for a remarkable restoration project honoring local Veterans.

David Schloemer, a former Life Scout of Troop 386, received a donation of pavers and materials from Concrete Stone and Tile Corp. to complete his Eagle Scout Service Project. Schloemer, a 14-year-old Eagle Scout, reached out to the CST Team regarding his aspirations; CST was impressed by Schloemer's proposed project and was happy to donate CST paving stones and VERSA- LOK® retaining wall material to aid him in his endeavor.

The project was a restoration of the Veteran's Circle at Memorial Park in Montgomery, NY; a town conveniently nearby a CST Manufacturing Plant. With the paving stones provided by CST, Schloemer was able to completely restore and refinish the memorial, making it more aesthetically pleasing and a grander tribute to those fallen troops whom the memorial remembers. The new Veteran's Circle was unveiled and dedicated in time for Memorial Day. Schloemer took on this Service Project as his final task in his quest to become an Eagle Scout. As mandated by the Boy Scouts of America, each Life Scout who has intent to become an Eagle Scout must plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project that will benefit their community. The benefitting organization, the scout's Scoutmaster, and District must approve the project chosen by the scout before they can begin.

CST General Manager, Steve Guida, commented on Schloemer's contribution to the Montgomery Community, "When approached by the local Eagle Scouts with their desire to do a major facelift to the local Veteran's Memorial for the Memorial Day ceremony, we felt being part of the community was important." Guida continued, "We donated some VERSA LOK® retaining wall and MONO-CAST® pavers and the rest was really David and his team, they did the hard part."

CST congratulates David Schloemer on his hard work and dedication and the honorable distinction of becoming an Eagle Scout. Below you will find before and after pictures of the Veteran's Circle. High Resolution photos are available upon request.
