Eagle Scout Project (Frank Brown)

Frank Brown of Jackson Township Troop 204 Boy Scouts completed an Eagle Scout Project which was dedicated to all Veterans from Jackson Township killed in action.  The Project centered around a tree that was previously planted at Leidy Park in memory of Aaron Rusin who was killed in Iraq.  The Project involved landscaping around the tree plus building a bench for the park.  A memorial stone donated by Wyse Memorials was used to honor Veterans killed in action.  The Project certainly added to the continuing beautification effort at Leidy Park.  Below are some photos of the Project:
