Preston Stewart’s Eagle Scout project
Work is under way on Preston Stewart’s Eagle Scout Leadership project to remodel the Outdoor Chapel. Last weekend, Preston and fellow scouts and friends from Troop 30 cleaned up the grounds, spread a tarp barrier and then spread mulch to cover the entire area.
Work will continue this weekend with new benches and a pulpit being constructed. The bases of the benches will be stumps from a tree recently cut down at the back of the church parking lot.
The project will be finished for the Oct. 2 Animal Blessing and for the outdoor marriage of Nancy Ricker’s granddaughter on Oct. 15.
The Outdoor Chapel was created in 1994 as John Hoskins’ Eagle Scout project. It was remodeled for a first time in 2005 as Matt Braun’s Eagle Scout project.
Thank you to members of the church who made sandwiches for the scouts while they worked on the Outdoor Chapel.
