The Back Mountain Bloomers Garden Club Community Grant Committee recently awarded $250 in response to Vladimir Gingo’s application to advance his Eagle Scout Project. Gingo, of Shavertown, is a Life Scout in Troop 281 in Dallas. He conducted his Eagle Scout Project at St. Johns the Baptist Orthodox Church, 93 Zerby Ave., Edwardsville, by filling in voids on the driveway, repairing parish lawns, incorporating a drain for rainwater, and aggressively trimming and saving a large 50-year-old cherry tree. From left, are Carol Sorber, club president; Vladimir Gingo, Eagle Scout candidate; and Joanne Bittner, grant committee chairwoman. photo
