Local Boy Scouts Help Ready New Ramona Library

Boy Scout Scotty Barber and his fellow Scouts are working hard to make sure Old Glory is flying in front of the new Ramona Library when it opens next month.

Scotty’s Eagle Scout project is to install the flagpole in front of the new Main Street library. The nearly 21,000 square-foot community center is almost ready to welcome patrons, with a ribbon cutting scheduled for Feb. 15.

 With that deadline approaching, Scotty and other Scouts from Ramona Troop 130 devoted Saturday to constructing the flagpole’s base. They dug into the ground, shaped a form for the foundation and reinforced it, then poured and finished the concrete. The Scouts plan to return Saturday, Jan. 15, to set the flagpole.
