Boy Scout Aaron Giniewski unveiled his Eagle Scout American Legion remodel project at the American Legion Post 626, Birdsboro, Saturday, April 12.

Giniewski, a sophomore at Exeter High School, is a member of Boy Scout Troop 333 out of St. Lawrence.

For his Eagle Scout project, Giniewski remodeled the bathroom and upstairs foyer at American Legion Post 626. He was solely responsible for obtaining the supplies and coordinating the work effort.

The bathroom was a complete remodel, which included a new floor, repainted walls, and installing a new vanity and new toilet. The upstairs foyer was repainted and a new window was installed. Assisting Giniewski from Troop 333 were Tom, Bobby and Ricky Wike; Joe and Christian Santos, and Tyler Saccamozzone. Also assisting were Aaron’s brother Andrew; his father, Kevin; and Ron and Mike Baer. Certificates of recognition were given to all those that helped.

Present at the unveiling were Aaron’s parents; Kevin and Marie, brother Andrew as well as members of his troop and legion members

Robert Mealand, POST Adjutant started off the event with opening remarks and Giniewski’s grandfather, Stan Giniewski lead the invocation.

When asked by Mealand, “What challenges did you find?” Giniewski replied, “Too many.”

Supplies for his project were donated by Lowe’s Home Improvement and the American Legion donated money to the project so Giniewski could purchase additional supplies.

The project started Jan. 3, 2014 and was completed on March 31.
