Jonathan Peters, Boy Scoot Troop 72
We would like to say a special thank you to Jonathan Peters. He chose to do his Eagle Scout project here at HUMC. Jonathan landscaped the flower beds along preschool side of the church. He removed all the old plants and mulch and planted a variety of shrubs.
Jonathan planted azaleas, boxwoods, gardenias, mums and a dwarf Alberta by the preschool entrance that could be decorated at Christmas time. He also installed a little library box and filled it with children books. The children who are coming and going can pick out a book to take home. Jonathan added a bench in the fenced in play area for additional seating.
