To the editor,
    It has been my privilege to do my Eagle Scout Project with the help of many people. The final phase of my project was building a flip-back bench to accent the first phase of woodchip landscaping at the Paw Paw Middle School.
    As you know, treated wood is very expensive and I needed it to build the bench. Mr. Roy Meyer from Meyer Wood Products stepped up to help me as a local scout! He GAVE me all of my treated wood and cut the boards to the length I needed (scouts are not allowed to use power tools - an adult must do any power tool work). Without the support of businessmen like Mr. Meyer, scouts would have a very hard time completing their Eagle Scout service projects.
    I would like to sincerely thank Mr. Meyer again for his support, and I hope all readers of this paper will go to Meyer Wood Products, 32180 Red Arrow Highway, Paw Paw, (269) 657-3450, for all of their wood product needs. He is a wonderful supporter of Scouting.
