To the editor:

I would like to thank all the individuals and businesses who donated and/or contributed to my Eagle Scout project. My project is a brick fire pit with log benches located at Park Meadows Baptist Church, 800 Memorial Park Drive in Lincoln.

With the help of these people and businesses, I was able to complete my project on time. Individuals who donated money are my grandparents, Frank Sulc and Bill and Rosalie Mikesell, and my parents, Joe and Rachel Mikesell. I would like to thank Gary Barackman especially for spending more than 25 hours crafting the two log benches. Thank you to Ace Hardware, Alexander Lumber Co., Big R, Contractor's Ready Mix and Hundman Lumber Co. for donating the much-needed materials and supplies. Also, I would like to thank the Mount Pulaski Boy Scout Troop 122 and Scoutmaster Greg Maus for giving me the chance to advance this far in Scouting.

Logan Mikesell
BSA Troop 122
