Eagle Scout works at area cemetery
Scouts form Kansas recently worked on a project at a cemetery near Jet for an Eagle Scout project.
On January 9, 2021, Aidan Brockman and five Scouts along with two leaders from Troop 898 of Clearwater, Kan., and three Cemetery board members visited Pleasant View Cemetery in Jet worked to complete Brockman’s Eagle Scout Project.
Brockman raised over $2,000 from various sources including Kanokla, Alfalfa Electric, the Jet Lions Club, the Jet Women’s club and private donations. These funds were used to purchase flag holders to mark the local Veterans graves and will be used to hold the United States flag for holidays such as Memorial Day.
Leftover funds were donated to the cemetery, as were 47 additional flag holders for future use.
Brockman and the scouts placed 153 flag holders on the veterans buried at Pleasant View.
The scouts included Brockman, Brycen Brockman, Mason Skiles, JT Teeter, William Thomas and Nathan Halsey, along with leaders Murray DeVore and Andy Reynolds.
Those on representing the cemetery board Tom Tucker, Butch Mahnken and Kim Humphrey.
