A new kiosk at the main entrance of the Grand Forest on Miller Road signifies for most the start of a journey. But the Bainbridge teenager who helmed its construction, the project is in fact a finale of sorts.
Bodie Strom, 13, completed the 9-by-12-foot rough-cut cedar kiosk as his Eagle Scout project. According to his parents, Tara and Aaron Strom, the project took a little over a month to complete (about 150 hours) with the help of 17 volunteers.
“He built the kiosk to replace the previous one, which was too small, rotting, and didn’t have an overhang for visitors to stand under to get out of the rain,” said his mother.
Bodie has reportedly received a lot of positive feedback in response to the new kiosk.
