Relax in the shade thanks
to this Eagle Scout project
Cole Je ery, a rising senior at North Salem High School and a Boy Scout in Troop 4 Purdys,
recently completed his Eagle Scout Project under the guidance of Scoutmaster Trip Balch. To
bene t the Ruth Keeler Library and North Salem community, Cole raised funds to purchase
ve picnic tables with umbrellas for the library’s outdoor space. He assembled the tables with
