Eagle Scout Project Benefits H.L. Johnson

Casey Whalen, a 17-year-old member of Boy Scout Troop 111 of Royal Palm Beach, chartered by Caribbean-Americans for Community Involvement (CAFCI), completed a service project for H.L. Johnson Elementary School on Nov. 24, as part of his quest to become an Eagle Scout. Whalen led his fellow scouts and adults to build six 8-foot-by-4-foot garden beds, complete with their own irrigation system; two wooden benches capped with wooden flower pots (complete with flowers) on each end with shrubs and trees for future shade; and an 8-foot picnic table for the teachers and students to enjoy on the recess field. Whalen decided to give back to the elementary school that he once attended. He hopes the Eagle Project will be a great addition for the Garden Club and Team Green to enjoy for many years to come.
