Chris Long leads Eagle Scout project to improve McGraw Park

Chris Long led a group of 15 scouts from Boy Scout Troop 238 in Bailey as they built and installed three benches on the Morrow Mountain Trail in McGraw Memorial Park on a snowy and cold November 3and 4, 2018.   This was Chris’ Eagle Scout Rank Community Service project.

Third Time at McGraw for Scouts

Chris Long led the third Eagle Scout Rank Community Service project to benefit McGraw Park. The 20 acre park in Bailey is maintained by the Park County Historical Society totally by volunteers and donations. Boy Scout Troop 238 has improved McGraw Park three years in a row. Previous Eagle Scout Rank Community Service projects were by Tim Long in 2017 (Chris’ brother) and Robert Anderson in 2016.  Scouters also cleared several trees that had fallen across the trail.  Thank you to Chris Long and the hardy members of Troop 238.
