Connor Hickie

Bloomingdale runners and walkers now have two more scenic spots to rest while out enjoying the sights and sounds of our community. To earn his Eagle Scout ranking Bloomingdale High School graduate (2014), Connor Hickie, recently completed a project that included raising funds for the construction of two new benches, and then installing them along Nature’s Way Boulevard.

To Connor Hickie installing the bench site across from Cambridge Cove wasn’t solely a Boy Scout project. It was also “for the community, the McCarthys and Zach’s friends,” said Hickie. “I wanted it to be a place where anyone could go and sit and reflect, and remember exactly what kind of person [Zach] was to us all, our friend.”
