PES club helps children cope when parents deploy

deployed.”

Local Boy Scout spearheads area beautification project

Local Boy Scout spearheads area beautification project

For nearly three years, residents of the Kelley Barracks Housing Area
on Ash Street came and went with no particular reason to stop and
literally “smell the roses.”

community, not only for his present neighbors, but for those in years
to come, by installing a garden on Sept. 5, as part of an Eagle Scout
Leadership Service Project. The garden, which includes a sign and
bench, was placed at the entrance of Weaver’s housing area.

In order to become an Eagle Scout, the highest rank attainable in the
Boy Scouts of America program, Scouts are required to complete a
leadership service project that benefits an organization other than
Scouting.
