QUINNESEC -As his Eagle Scout service project, Zach Kemnitz of Kingsford, implemented and planted a new flower bed at the Quinnesec Cemetery.

"We were searching for projects and when we came across the Quinnesec cemetery we saw the old flower bed was all busted up. We thought it would be a nice thing to do not only for the community but for the troops to refurbish the flower bed that lies in front of the plaque of veterans." said Kemnitz.
