Eagle scout project at Victory-Peace Garden

of the Victory-Peace Garden
This past week a beautiful trellis and garden bench were built and installed by an Eagle Scout, and friends, to enhance the entrance to the Victory-Peace garden at Valley of Peace Lutheran.  Earlier in the year this scout organized a car wash at the church to help raise funds for the project.

Did you know that in the past 100 years since the Eagle Scout award has been established only about 2-4 percent of the Boy Scouts receive this high level of achievement.  This award has been identified by some as "the Ph.D. of Boyhood."   It is estimated that more than 100 million hours of service have been provided over the past century by Eagle Scouts (A century of Eagle Scouts).

Way to go scouts!
