Caleb Parker and Joe Nistler with picnic tables built by Parker
At Pioneers Park, Boy Scout Caleb Parker talks with Joe Nistler about the completion of four picnic tables Caleb made for the Pioneers of Alaska. This project is Caleb's service project requirement for Eagle Scout rank, the highest rank in Boy Scouts. The tables are in the storage area of the pavilion, if groups want to use the pavilion and the tables they should contact Pioneers of Alaska and make reservations. In the past year three young men including Caleb have completed service projects, the pavilion next to city hall (Paul Bealer) and the meditation area behind First Baptist Church (Matt Sharp). Only Matt Sharp so far has received eagle rank. If there are boy's age 11 and older interested in Boy Scouts contact local Troop 56 (895-1032).  Photo courtesy of Fronty Parker.
