Eagle Scout Project results in new flagpole at 4th VFD
Taylor Miller and Troop 208 dedicated the new state of the art flag pole on Saturday, November 2, at the Fourth District Volunteer Fire Department in Jetson as part of the official kick-off for the Community Festival.
The top of the flagpole is equipped with LED lights for night presentation.
Miller, 16, installed the flag pole for his Eagle Scout Project, which will be beneficial to the community. It usually takes about seven years to earn enough badges to become an Eagle. Each badge takes approximately six hours of classroom and individual time to complete. He has completed 65 badges and is currently working on more. Including Cub Scouts, his parents, Patrick and Dawn, have assisted Taylor for ten years.
Fourth District Volunteer VFD Chief Carolyn Shepherd was thankful to Taylor and the Scouts for coming out on a 30-degree morning and being involved in their community festival. Free food and drinks were available for everyone.
Board President Ken Tomes and other firefighters congratulated and thanked Miller for picking the Fourth District for his project.
