Remember The Miners is pleased to announce volunteering for the Nicholas County service project with Summit Bechtel Boy Scouts Initiative August 6-8.
The project will begin with the refurbishment of the Veterans Memorial Park in Summersville. Other parts of the service project include Veterans Memorial Park’s historical Red Barn, the 4-H Kitchen, a public walking trail, and landscaping.
“We’re thrilled to join volunteers in the heart of coal country for this exciting initiative,” began Jason Parsons, President of Remember The Miners. “It’s our honor to give back to the communities that shape the hardest working people in our nation—the coal miners.”
The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve is a 10,600-acre Scout reserve. It’s the 4th high adventure base in the Boy Scouts of America, and the new permanent home of the national Scout Jamboree.
Remember The Miners is involved with several volunteer endeavors throughout West Virginia. To join the Remember The Miners volunteer team, please contact Cam Payne at cam(at)remembertheminers(dot)org.
