Local boy scouts, 4-H club collaborate on community betterment project

Local 4-H members are shown above working on a landscaping project at Accura of Ogden.

After being awarded a community betterment grant by DuPont Pioneer, the Bluff Creek Wranglers 4-H Club and local boy scouts troop decided to team up on a project to build a wooden bench and do landscaping work at Accura of Ogden.

In particular, Lane Langhorn and Sage Seeger, who are both involved in boy scouts and 4-H, took charge and led the project to build the bench, while the landscaping was done by the Bluff Creek Wranglers 4-H group.

Much of the landscaping was focused on beautifying the front entrance of the care center, with new mulch, flowers and plants. The project, overall, was made possible with a lot of help from the community.

The grant paid for a majority of the landscaping supplies and tools, and the lumber and supplies were donated by Probuild. Bomgaars in Boone donated 20 bags of mulch for the landscaping as well, and community members helped with the landscape design. Locals David and Barnabas Lundberg let Lane and Sage use their shop to build the bench.
