Thankful For New Eagle Scout
On Sunday, 1/25/15, Nancy Jones attended the Eagle Scout ceremony for Hughes Moffet from troop 370 at St.James Methodist Church. Hughes built a beautiful circular bench around our dogwood tree at the front of the building and a great picnic table on the grounds.
Nancy said, "The ceremony was very inspiring and extra sweet for me because I taught Hughes at Sarah Smith.".
