Veterans Memorial Park has been a favorite spot for swimming, walking, playing and picnicking for local families for decades. It is also a place to simply sit and relax and enjoy the sound of children laughing and the sight of squirrels scampering from tree to tree.
All of these reasons and more are why Wyatt Williams chose Memorial Park as the focal point of his Eagle Scout project. A senior at Shippensburg Area Senior High School, Wyatt participates in Scouting with Boy Scout Troop 121 in Shippensburg. He has been involved in the Scouting program from age 6, and is currently working toward earning Scouting’s top honor.
