Zach Larsen Eagle Project

I have chosen to work with the Warrenton Fire Department to restore fire hydrants around Warrenton. On Saturday morning we will be working on 50-100 fire hydrants. Landscaping around the hydrant, doing some routine maintenance and painting it yellow is what needs to be done to each hydrant. The more people that come the more hydrants we will be able to do.
