His Troop and family assisted him with planting 18 apple, pear, and peach trees.  He also led the Troop in pouring a concrete pad and built two benches for seating on top of the concrete pad.  He also led volunteers in laying a paver walkway to the seating area.  This area was inspired by the community garden and free meal location around the corner from this space.  Anyone in the area may use the green space and benches, and enjoy fresh fruit when in season.

Caiden M.

The Berlin Church Cemetery was very run down. Gravestones dating back to the 19th century have fallen over due to the lack of foundations. For Caiden's project, he identified gravestones, used Berlin Township cemetery records to return graves to their correct spots, and created quik-crete foundations. A focus would be placed on veterans gravesites.
