Prospective Eagle Scout Spruces Up Agricultural MuseumPosted: Updated:
People were outside and getting their hands dirty in Stone Mills.
16-year-old Kallen Ingels of Troop 46 was working hard at the Northern New York Agricultural Museum Saturday. His goal? To fix up the flower beds for his Eagle Scout Project.
As the Historical Society approaches it's 50th anniversary, it's an improvement that is much appreciated.
"When you don't know what you are going to do when you've got a big project that needs to be taken care of, something comes along and just works right at the right time. And this did," said Maureen Bartlett, President of the Northern New York Agricultural Historical Society, "I'm very thankful that they did what they did and that they did a good job."
"It was in bad shape, and I thought I could like, fix it up, extend it a bit, and like, put new like shrubs, perennials, and lay down some new mulch. It's nice knowing that it is going to be here a long time," stated Ingels, who is working toward becoming an Eagle Scout.
The Northern New York Agricultural Museum officially opens up with events in June.
