A Scout is Clean, so when Scout Caleb W. saw that a local park had suffered vandalism, he knew he’d found a worthy Eagle Scout project.
The Cleveland Advocate shares the story of how Caleb pulled together a team of other Scouts to help clean up the local park, remove the graffiti and other marks of vandalism, and make improvements to the area so that neighborhood children could enjoy playing there again.
Graffiti and other damage to some of the park areas had made what was once a lovely park in this Texas town into an ugly eyesore. Caleb and his team of Scouts worked hard, cleaning up the vandalism and doing some landscaping for the park to return it to its former grandeur as a green space for all in the town to enjoy.
“The park is greatly improved,” Caleb’s mother told the Cleveland Advocate. “The boys worked seamlessly. I am hoping the community will take pride in the clean up because it is a really beautiful green space.”
