Boy Scout Troop 361 helps improve the community

Federal Way Scouts complete variety of projects

Boy Scout Troop 361 of Federal Way has been busy positively impacting the community.

During the past couple of month Scouts have built and installed an arched bridge at the entrance to the Light of Christ Community Garden as well as bat boxes, which will serve as a home for bats; constructed agility structure at French Lake off leash dog park; and made and installed trail signs for the trail system at Julia’s Gulch in northeast Tacoma.

They also helped unload pumpkins for the Light of Christ Community Garden’s annual pumpkin patch in October.
