Sequim Eagle Scout candidate leads park picnic table project

A half-dozen picnic tables at Pioneer Memorial Park near downtown Sequim got a significant makeover, thanks to a local scout.

Eagle Scout candidate Calem Ryne Klinger was the project leader/coordinator for the partial reconstruction and refurbishing of six picnic tables located at the park in early October, as he helped facilitate the work completed by 15 participants.

Thomas Lumber donated the necessary supplies.

Klinger said that to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout a candidate has to serve, coordinate, plan and execute a large-scale service project and he chose the park picnic table project. In the process, he said “(I) learned a lot of things that will help me in any job that I choose to go later on in life, and also make a good impact in the community.

“It helped me develop quite a few experiences and realize some of the processes that are involved in leadership and carrying things out to achieve an end result.”

Members of Sequim Prairie Garden Club said they greatly appreciate Klinger’s choice to refurbish the park’s well-used picnic tables for his project, as well as Thomas Lumber’s generous contribution.

Garden club members regularly volunteer in maintenance of the park, though volunteers in the community are welcome to participate as well. For information, contact the Sequim Prairie Garden Club at 360-808-3434 or www.sequimprairie gardenclub.org.
