Boy Scout David Brockmeyer, 17, has completed his Eagle Scout project just before his 18th birthday on Oct. 13. The Imagination Station Beautification Project was coordinated and supervised by Brockmeyer with the help of his Boy Scout troop, Troop 212 and parents. The project consisted of painting the red, green, and light-blue pyramids, pyramids above the swing-set, painting the pavilion, fixing trashcans and replacing some of the fencing around the playground.

“I know this builds leadership and the work you do is outstanding,” said Dennis Murphy, Altus Parks and Recreation Director.

“From the City of Altus we truly appreciate it,” Murphy added.

A fresh coat of paint can bring new life to any area. It has done just that for the Imagination Station playground in Altus. As more Boy Scouts continue to take on these projects throughout the city in effort to earn badges and new ranking, such as Eagle Scout, the community benefits as a whole.

“I’m looking forward to getting my Eagle Scout,” Brockmeyer said. “I’ll still be a Scout until I’m 21, and then I plan to continue my involvement as an adult leader.”

Assistant Scout Master Richard Weaver, Boy Scout Troop 212, would like to acknowledge and thank the groups and businesses that donated and supported this project. These include The Altus Rotary Club, Sherwin Williams, Fox Building Supply and Pizza Hut.
