Thursday, November 11, 2010

On Saturday, Oct. 30, David Noursi completed his Eagle Scout project by leading Troop 1539 and other volunteers in an environmentally friendly project focused on removing invasive plants and revitalizing native plants in Northside Park in Vienna.

Thirty-six volunteers, among them 22 boy scouts and several scout parents, including scout dad and Virginia State Delegate Mark Keam (D-35), helped David implement this service project for the Town of Vienna.

"On the day of my project, the weather was perfect. It took from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to complete everything. A total of 108 volunteer service hours went into the completed project, and I learned a lot about what it means to work with different groups to accomplish a goal," said David.

Troop 1539 is sponsored by American Legion Post 180 and meets every Tuesday at Emmaus United Church of Christ in Vienna. The Troop includes 70 scouts, among them are 7 active Eagle Scouts. The current troop Scout Master is Steve Costner.
