Local Eagle Scout Candidate Leads Project
Edmonson Voice Report:
The Edmonson County Lions have received a much-needed restoration of their picnic tables under the shelter at the fairgrounds, thanks to the leadership of a local Eagle Scout candidate and his fellow scouts.
Edmonson County Boy Scout Troop 597, Eagle Scout Candidate Jason Willis decided for his Eagle Scout Project, he wanted to do something for the Edmonson County Lions Club for their support of the scouting program, which was to refurbish the picnic tables.
Willis developed and presented a plan, which was approved by the scout leadership, and then after he raised money and supplies for the project, fellow scouts and scout leaders followed Willis' plan and direction.
During the project, the picnic tables received new pressure treated wood, nuts and bolts, and the metal frames received a fresh coat of rust resistant paint.
Edmonson County Boy Scout Troop 597 is sponsored by the Edmonson County Lions Club. Edmonson County Boy Scout Troop 597 meets on Monday nights at 6:00 p.m. at the Edmonson County Lions Club. Youth interested in joining scouts can attend the meetings to obtain additional information.
