I wonder if this community knows the wonderful people
who live and support activities that go one here, such as: The Cub Scouts
and the Boy Scouts and the Girls Scouts. Some of these were honored at
a banquet. They are from left, Dan Karel, Aleta Coppernoll, Shari Chaffee
and Roger Burgess. These people have given above and beyond what is required.
Their efforts have been an encouragement to the community and to the scouting
council. The program has grown leaps and bounds because these people stepped
forward and have given their all. They were recognized at this banquet
but the community needs to recognize them so when you see them, tell them
thank you. You can also support their programs by buying popcorn and cookies
and other things they sell for fundraising. If you didn’t know, they also
do roadside cleanup because of those that don’t have the community spirit
and litter. You might just see them picking up trash and I believe the
last time they did they got over 20 large bags of trash. Now don’t quote
me on that because it could be more, what do I know, I just stay home and
send my hubby Roger to clean up. Well I just want to acknowledge their
efforts and commend them for their commitment and their love for this community
and the kids that live here. by Jane Burgess. Click on the photo
