BAYARD — Boy Scouts with Troop 22 descended Wednesday, Sept. 22, on City Park to plant trees as part of its annual project.

Scoutmaster Matt McLaughlin said the tree planting is a way for the troop to give back to the community.

“With the Cub Scout troop that we have and our Webelos, every year there’s some community service hours required that we do. To me, it’s just about giving back to the community in this way. Having Todd Filipi here with the NRD just showing the kids how to properly plant trees and leaving a legacy is the most important thing,” McLaughlin said.
