Over the summer Steven Fournier, son of Carole and Joe Fournier, designed and built flower boxes for the entrance of Niagara Hospice House as part of his Eagle Scout project. In order to earn the Eagle Scout rank, a Boy Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of service, leadership, and outdoor skills. This is an esteemed accomplishment; only about 5% of all Boy Scouts go on to become Eagle Scouts.

Steven hopes to complete the requirements within the next ten to eleven months, right before his eighteenth birthday. He is currently a member of Cambria troop 8 under Scoutmaster Todd Fisher. He is the youngest of 4 boys, all of whom are Eagle Scouts. Steven attends Starpoint High School where he also plays soccer.

Niagara Hospice served over 900 families last year and over 21,000 Niagara County residents since 1988. Hospice is specialized care for the terminally ill. Niagara Hospice provides support services to both the patient and family - providing comfort, dignity and choice.
