Deputy Clerk Wurmlinger read the following two proclamations into the record:

WHEREAS, Matt Heika is a 17 year old student who attends Cardinal Mooney High School in Marine City.

WHEREAS, Matt Heika’s project consisted of upgrading the interior walls and ceiling of the Historical Village.

WHEREAS, Matt Heika accomplished this by installing insulation to the interior walls and ceiling. He cut and fit the used barn wood, then nailed it to the interior walls. Matt tried to replicate the walls and ceiling as it was in earlier times when cabins and buildings were built. He did this by using manila rope to fill in some of the voids in the barn wood. After the ceiling and walls were finished he even went above and beyond by then taking the ceiling panels and washed and repainted them which had been removed and he reinstalled them.

WHEREAS, Matt Heika raised $314.00 from fund raisers and donations. He had a bottle drive for his fund raiser, also received a $90.00 donation from Mrs. Triner.

WHEREAS, Matt Heika took 36.75 hours to plan the project and get approval for his plan. The total amount of time to implement this project took 195 hours.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE TOWNSHIP BOARD OF THE CHARTER TOWNSHIP OF CHESTERFIELD, MACOMB COUNTY, MICHIGAN;

The Charter Township of Chesterfield, Board of Trustees hereby commends Matt Heika for the completion of his Eagle Project.

AND

WHEREAS, Mike Heika is a 17 year old student who attends Cardinal Mooney High School in Marine City.

WHEREAS, Mike Heika’s project consisted of planting Arborvitae shrubs around the electrical transformer box for the Historical Village.

WHEREAS, Mike Heika accomplished this by much research and planning. He investigated which shrubs would grow the best in that area and also grow large enough to camouflage the transformer. Since dealing with electricity, he contacted Detroit Edison to find out the requirements for the proper clearances. Once the connection was made with Detroit Edison he made a layout around the transformer to determine how many shrubs would be required. He maintained the shrubs and kept them watered until the ground froze.

WHEREAS, Mike Heika raised $376.00 from fund raisers and donations. He had a bottle drive for his fund raiser and also held a car wash.

WHEREAS, Mike Heika took 52.15 hours to plan the project and get approval for his plan. The total amount of time to implement this project took 185 hours.
