Landon Pike reached out to The Filling Station in the Fall of 2021 to learn how he could partner in giving back to the county where he grew up. After several planning meetings with the Eagle Scout leader and presenting to the scout board, the project was approved. Landon wanted to build 4 benches to be placed in the Garden Venue.
Landon comments on why The Filling Station:
“As soon as it was time to start my Eagle Scout project, I knew which community I would be working for. Having grown up in Pollocksville for most of my life, I was immediately attracted to the idea of giving back to my community with the culmination of my scouting career. The titular Eagle Scout project is an opportunity to do so much more than acquire the final stamp in a Scout’s career. With this project, any scout can make a real difference to the organization of his choice, and to the community at large. Any chance I can get to help the little town that put a roof over my head, I take. Though the project is designed to be tough, to be a final rite of passage, the thought of people benefitting from The Filling Station, kept my head up, and kept me focused on the true goal: serving others.”
Thank you Landon Pike for the beautiful benches. We are working on plans to make the official presentation at the 5th Anniversary Celebration on Friday, August 26th at 11:30 AM
