GREENVILLE TEEN WORKS ON BRICK OVEN FOR EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT
A Greenville teen has taken on a special task for his Eagle Scout project. Taylor Hill, son of Josh and Erin Hill, has been working diligently restoring the brick oven on the west side of Patriot’s Park. The oven was originally constructed and dedicated in 1938 by the Greenville Garden Club. Over the past few weeks, Hill has been recruiting volunteers, raising funds, seeking donations, and guiding workers on the project. Hill is a member of Boy Scout Troop #50
A rededication ceremony was held Sunday, just in time for the oven’s 75th anniversary.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY BLESSES GROUND FOR SEVENTH HOUSE
On Saturday, Bond County Habitat for Humanity blessed the ground where their next home will be built in Sorento. Eric Watterson, with the Bond County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, told WGEL the purpose of the ground blessing is to demonstrate that while Habitat definitely partners with people and businesses, they also partner with God to provide housing to people in need.
The home in Sorento is the seventh house for Bond County Habitat for Humanity. Their partner family this year is the Melissa K. File family, of Sorento.
