Boy Scout Troop 232 (Purdy) Beautifies Jackson-Feild Homes

On a hot and muggy day __ members of Boy Scout Troop 232 traveled in force to Jackson-Feild homes to plant flowers around the campus. Members had to frequently hydrate due to the 90+ degree temperature.

Nevertheless, the Scouts stuck to their mission and at the end of the day the campus is awash in colors. The troop led by Chuck Lewis has performed a number of community service projects to improve the quality of life for the children at Jackson-Feild.

Tony Veliky, Director of Plant Services, expressed his appreciation and thanks to everyone involved. Their efforts have made a difference and he noted that it was very reassuring to have friends whom you can call upon to help with worthwhile projects.
