Bob Dusenberry presents the check to Scout Master Paul Marken

The Dusenbery family has been serving our community's automotive repair needs for over 75 years. As if that weren't enough the family recently reached out to Boy Scout Troop #325 with a $100 donation in appreciation of a job-well-done. The troop was tasked with clean-up at the Aztec cemetery grounds before the Memorial Day Holiday. Bob Dusenbery, President of the Aztec Cemetery Association donated the money for the troop to use as they see fit. Dusenbery (famously a man of action but few words) wrote a letter of thanks to the troop saying that the troop did, "an excellent clean-up" job.

"Some of the most important lessons scouting teaches are; community involvement, leadership and self-reliance," said Assistant Scout Master Paul Marken. "Projects like this help reinforce citizenship within the community" Marken and Scout Master Trenton Keeling mustered a 15 scout crew (plus around 8 adults) to take on the job which took about two hours. "We generally do community service projects for free but we really appreciate the cash donation as well." Marken said the troop will probably use the money to replenish supplies for the utility trailer that the troop uses for their camping trips, "We always need to repair tents or get new cooking gear, we also make sure that no scout misses an event because they can't afford it."

Cub Scouts (ages 6-10) meet Tuesday at Minium Park at 5:30 (summertime) or at the Aztec Presbyterian Church during the rest of the year. Boy Scouts (11-18) meet Mondays at 7:00 at the Presbyterian Church. The co-ed Venture Scouts (ages 15-21) meet Mondays 5:30 at The Aztec Presbyterian Church.
