The Daily Southerner, Tarboro, NC



A Scout is helpful. Yes, it's true, evident in the work these young Scouts from the First Free Will Baptist Church Troop 816 performed for America in Bloom (AIB) Community Cleanup Day on Saturday. In spite of heavy spurts of rain, they collected litter along the railroad track from Albemarle Avenue, across Main Street all the way to Saint Andrew Street. Afterwards, they met Buddy Hooks at the south end of Main near the traffic circle and helped him complete two AIB projects that will complement the south entrance to town. By spreading mulch around the plantings at the Thorne Realty landscape and edging the walkway at the Quigless Clinic landscape where other colorful plants were installed. Cornelia McGee-Anthony, from the Nash-Edgecombe Keep America Beautiful provided gloves and trash bags for all the volunteers. Troop 816 Scouts participating in the effort included (left to right) Bryson Parker, Davonatte McDowell, Jessie Tyson, Wayne Davis (assistant scoutmaster), CJ Keel, Dean Wells (scoutmaster), Steven Davis, Garrett Parker, Allen Taylor.
