JOHN DAY - In order to achieve the highest rank in Boy Scouting, Eagle, you must complete a number of things showing that you have acquired the necessary skills.
Among those requirements are merit badges, a position of leadership in the troop, and perhaps the most daunting, the Eagle Scout Leadership Project.
The project has its own requirements of length and a measurable amount of service to the community.
This community has seen many Eagle Scouts and their projects, the newest addition is the five brand-spanking-new picnic tables at the John Day Park and the Seventh Street Complex.
Earlier this summer, Chris Wunz received donations from area businesses and was assisted by 15 youth and three adults as they worked on the tables. The group racked up 140 hours, nearly triple the required 50 hours.
"So, go have a picnic and check out the new tables," Wunz invited.
