An Eagle Scout lends a helping hand to Nyssa cemetery

Congratulations to Howard Rushton on receiving his Eagle Scout award. 

Howard’s Eagle project consisted of assembling a group to assist Nyssa Hilltop Memorial Cemetery with cleanup following last May’s vandalism and destruction of many monuments. Howard also helped the American Legion Auxiliary Post No. 79 decorate for Memorial Day, returning after Memorial Day to collect the flags and crosses. In June, Howard organized a volunteer crew to clean up the cemetery, removing dead flowers. 

Well done, Howard! You are a great asset to our community.

Thank you to all the groups and individuals who created floats, rode horses or otherwise contributed to a . . .
