Another Eagle Scout Project Completed

Symon DeWitt finished his Eagle Scout Project with Troop 411 this past Saturday,
January 17th on the Bently-Kirman Tract Trail. “I would like to thank all of the individuals
who helped me along the way to complete a project that benefits our community",
Symon said. He coordinated the project with the Carson Valley Trails Association to construct an additional 30 feet of boardwalk along the first loop of the trail system. Working alongside many fellow scouts, friends and family, Symon added the additional boardwalk onto an existing 25 feet of boardwalk that was completed last summer by fellow scout Kyle Camara. Symon received most of the materials from the Home Depot at a discounted rate with additional funding provided by the Carson Valley Lions Club and Rotary Club of Minden. The boardwalk serves to keep the feet of trail users dry when the area becomes muddy or underwater.
