Eagle Scout provides soaring example of cooperation

Lansing Boy Scout Kyle Bergfors, 15, prepares to raise a new flag Saturday during a special ceremony at Hammond's Oak Hill Cemetery on Hohman Avenue. The ceremony commemorated Bergfors Eagle Scout service project. Bergfors led other scouts in cosmetic landscaping around the cemetery's flagpole, the watering spigot area and in building a wooden box with disposable water containers to make it easier for Oak Hill visitors to water plants and flowers at the graves of their loved ones.
