On Sept. 23, Avery Mil­lisock, an Ea­gle Scout can­di­date from Troop 183 in Blan­don, hosted a flag rais­ing cer­e­mony at Maiden­creek Com­mu­nity Park in Blan­don to ini­ti­ate the use of a 25-foot flag­pole which was in­stalled as part of his Ea­gle Scout Ser­vice Pro­ject. The new flag­pole is lo­cated ad­ja­cent to the pic­nic pav­il­ion and Lit­tle League base­ball field. The com­mu­nity park is a heav­ily uti­lized pub­lic space that has never had a pub­lic flag­pole. Scouts from Troop 183 as­sisted with the ser­vice pro­ject which also in­cluded land­scape beau­ti­fi­ca­tion of a memo­rial bench lo­cated near the flag­pole. Spot light­ing was also in­stalled as part of the pro­ject to al­low the flag to be flown at night.
