Edward Peterson, an Eagle Scout from Gig Harbor's Troop 217, installed a flagpole at the cemetery as his Eagle Scout Project.

On Saturday, March 20, Edward Peterson, with the help of family and fellow Scouts from Troop 217, installed the new 25’ flagpole for the cemetery. This was Edward’s Eagle Scout Project that had been in the planning stages for several months.

We are so grateful to have had this opportunity to work with this fine young man! Edward and his troop have been coming to the cemetery to honor Veterans on Veterans Day for the past 6 years.

Edward was instrumental in the fundraising, the planning, and the installation. It will beautify the grounds for future generations.

Way to go Edward!
