Fifteen-year-old, Jack Allen, showed off his finished project, a new shelter house for the New Ross Conservation Club (NRCC). Allen is a Boy Scout member of Troop 318. He has been a Boy Scout for the past five years and a Cub Scout the five years previous. He chose to build a shelter house as a final project in earning his Eagle Scout rank. 
"It was a lot of hard work but lots of fun," Allen said. 
Allen said he was inspired to help the NRCC after a neighbor suggested the idea. Allen said he had fond memories of a camping trip there when he was 11 years old and agreed this would be a great community service project to help earn his Eagle Scout rank. Allen had to fund raise the money for the supplies, research best prices, execute and build the shelter from the ground up. He began with a fundraising dinner at his home church, The Advance Christian Church. He then reached out to local businesses to find the best prices he could. 
Allen says Town & Country Home Center gave him a considerable discount on the lumber and IMI gave him a great deal on concrete. He also took time to thank, Nucor Steel, New Ross Conservation Club, Duane Browne, the Advance Christian Church, the Ladies fellowship and church congregation for all of their donations. The project totaled more than $2,500.
