RUTHSBURG — Boy Scouts from Troop 464 left their warm tents at their Tuck­a­hoe Park camp site early on the morn­ing of April 23 to do­nate their time on var­i­ous cleanup projects around Queen Anne’s and Caro­line coun­ties. Cleanup projects com­pleted by the 32 scouts, in­cluded the Old Wye Church and Ch­ester­field ceme­ter­ies, Mill­stream Park, Ridgely United Methodist Church, the old Cen­tre­ville High School (Board of Ed­u­ca­tion build­ing) and the Ruthsburg Com­mu­nity Cen­ter.

Af­ter lunch, the scouts con­tin­ued with their cleanup ef­fort by pick­ing up trash along Ma­son Branch, Crouse Mill and Dam­son­town Roads. They also per­formed trail main­te­nance at Tuck­a­hoe State Park. In all, Troop 464 con­trib­uted over 232 com­bined hours of com­mu­nity ser­vice and col­lected 40 bags of trash from county roads.
