A local Boy Scout troop is taking time out of their winter break to do a little community service.
Boy Scout Troop 34 in Neosho spent the day cleaning up one resident's property that had left over debris from the flooding earlier this spring. The Boy Scouts were there for most of the day to pick up leaves, clear broken fencing, and remove some of the barbed wire damaged from the water. Troop 34 has been in Neosho for decades and one of their duties is helping those in need.
"Troop 34 here in Neosho has been very active since 1942, actually it's seventy fifth year. And so you have something that'll carry on through the rest of their life and they'll remember this. That they helped others,” says Rodney Bechdoldt, Scoutmaster of Troop 34.
Bechdolt says this clean-up project is going toward their community service hours which can help some of boys reach a higher rank in the Scouts.
