Back Mountain Bloomers Garden Club Awards Grant to Eagle Scout

Back Mountain Bloomers 2017 award recipient

The Back Mountain Bloomers Garden Club's Community Grant Committee is proud to have awarded $300 for Robbie Lauer's application to advance his Eagle Scout Project.  Robbie, Shavertown, is a member of Boy Scout Pack 146 from Jackson Township.  Robbie's chosen Eagle Scout Project was completed at the Kingston Township Magisterial Building in Trucksville where he sought to improve, replant, and beautify the entrance to the office. A major part of this project was to lay a concrete base so that an existing Veteran's Memorial stone could be moved to a more prominent position in front of the building.
