06.20.15 Troop 140 Eagle Scout
of this year, we were approached by the Boy Scouts of Troop 140.
They were looking for a worth while project in order to achieve
Eagle Scout status. After a meeting and tour of the academy, the
Scouts were sure they had found the right place to put their skills
to work. Over the course of three weekends, the Scouts and Troop
advisers, volunteered their time to improving several areas on the
The Scouts installed a landscape feature at the flag poles, primed
and painted the flashover chamber, painted the hydrants & laid a
footing base of stone and finally, installed new pull up bars for
physical fitness training.
The results of their effort was outstanding. On Saturday, Mayor
Murray paid a visit to inspect their work and thank the Scouts on
behalf of the Township. We'd like to thank the Troop for all of
their hard work and their dedication to service. A special thank you
to Jack Blarr, the Eagle Scout who engineered the entire project. We
wish Jack and the rest of Troop 140 the best of luck in their future
