To help other people at all times

by Cathy Lazarus

Robertson County News
Some of you may recognize this phrase as part of the Boy Scouts of America oath. Camp Hearne has been the recipient of such help over the last year in a most remarkable way. Thanks to the efforts of several Eagle Scout candidates, Camp Hearne is being transformed into the “1943-reality” we had hoped it would become. It started with Connor who built six footlockers. Then Grayson built six wooden bunk bed frames. Then Matt added the clothes rods and shelves to match those seen in historic photographs of U.S. Army barracks. All of these projects earned them their Eagle Scout ranking and gave Camp Hearne’s barrack the much needed feel of 1943 conditions.

Organized by Sara Barrera with the help of several volunteers, participants received t-shirts, refreshments, information and fellowship.
