Scouts do a good turn for mans best friend

Covington’s Boy Scout Troop 222 recently built dog houses as part of an ongoing effort to serve the community.

To accomplish the task, and at the same time earn their Carpentry Merit Badge, the boys were required to build the dog houses using the tools and methods of carpenters from the year 1911. This included the use of the rule, a square, a miter and a bevel.

Jesse Holder, Assistant Scout Master Troop 222, said, "Community Service is and always has been core to the values of Scouting. Because of the hard work of our scouts, these dog houses are ready to be sent out to local Humane Societies and dog rescue shelters in need."
