Central lakes Snowmobile Club of Watkins and Austin Roerick of Kimball worked hard this fall to create five new trail signs. Located at snowmobile trail intersections in the area, you will see new signs with permanent location maps, directional signs, and mailboxes with trail maps for snowmobilers. These signs were made possible with the help of several scouts and volunteers. Austin spent a lot of time over the summer planning this project. He had to get the plans approved by the council before he could begin. He also attended local business meetings asking for donations and explained how this could help the community. He explained that the signs would keep snowmobilers safe, keep them on the trails instead of trespassing, and guide them to local businesses to help our economy.

Finally, this fall, all preparations had been made and Vossen Bros. construction opened their shop to several scouts and volunteers for building the signs. As the weather got colder and firmed the ground, the signs could be put in place. The Eagle Scout Project is complete! It could not have been accomplished without the generous donations from area businesses, clubs and private citizens.

We would like to thank all who helped make this project a success. Especially Vossen Bros. Construction for their time, building location, tools and expertise on the project.

We'd like to thank the following for their generous donations; Faber Building Supplies, Kimball Fire Dept., Kimball American Legion, Kimball Rod and Gun Club, John Loch, Mike Truenow, and Roger Cooper. Thank you to The Central Lakes Snowmobile Club, the Vossen families, Bill Liedman and scout troop 357 for the help with building the signs.
