HENLAWSON — People visiting Chief Logan Pond at Chief Logan State Park may have noticed some additions to the area. Local anglers, along with those who walk or stroll around the pond, now have somewhere to sit and just enjoy the views or watch a fishing rod.
For his Eagle Scout project, Samuel Justice of Henlawson, decided to donate eight wooden benches, placing them around the pond.
“I was at the park fishing one day and noticed the lack of seating,” Justice said. “A lot were sitting on the ground or had brought chairs. I thought it would be nice if there were benches there where people could sit and enjoy their selves.”
Justice said his family members helped with the cost of the benches, and Wyatt Scaggs at Baisden Brothers also contributed to the project.
Justice, who has been scouting for five years, says he has learned a lot of useful things scouting.
“I’ve become a lot more out-going and accomplished a lot more,” Justice said.
Justice, son of Jared and Lori Justice, is a member of Troop 58 in Verdunville and a junior at Logan High School.
