Adams Thanks Boy Scout For Cleaning Park
The Adams Selectmen last week thanked Boy Scout Quinton Thomas for spearheading a clean up of the town's Columbia World War I Memorial Park.
iBerkshires.com reports Thomas was given a certificate of appreciation Wednesday at the board's regular meeting for his work on the Columbia Street park.
Thomas is working toward his Eagle Scout service award and said after spending some time trying to find a good project he settled on the park.
The park across from the Memorial Building dates to around 1920 but was redone with new monuments in 2002.
Thomas painted and stained the benches and trash barrels at the park. He also power washed the monuments and built raised flower beds in which he planted flowers.
The board thanked Thomas and Selectman James Bush said when he first saw what he was doing, he had to take a double take.
Town Administrator Jay Green, a veteran and former Boy Scout, told Thomas to keep up the good work.
