Jun. 10—Councilwoman Patty Wininger, Ward 3, extended heartfelt thanks to two local Boy Scout troops who volunteered their time to make the community look better.
Boy Scout Troops 4417 and 4434 responded to a call from the Parks and Rec Advisory Board and helped with painting efforts at the Heritage Park & Arboretum.
"They met a need, and did it with hard work and dedication to help make Duncan look good," Wininger said.
The scouts, along with adults and Parks Board members, repainted the large Bi-Centennial Circle at Heritage Park, located at Highway 81 and Bois D'Arc, Wininger said.
"This circle has been in existence for decades," she said. "It now pops and adds to the appeal and history of this remarkable park, complete with its lovely trees, pathway and other memorabilia."
Wininger said she and the council wanted to thank the scouts "for their service and volunteerism."
"We hope this will spur and encourage others to volunteer," she said. "We would welcome clubs, groups, organizations, churches, scouts, those needing community service, businesses and others to call City Hall and ask to speak to Parks Director Larry Jones in order to volunteer and help."
She also said businesses and groups can adopt a park from the 10 parks Duncan has to offer.
"Any help would be welcomed," she said.
