James B. Cohen, Plympton Troop 4480, officially became an Eagle Scout Nov. 9 of this year. For his community project, James chose the construction of a map kiosk at the Ring Road entrance to Plympton Parks, a project that has been important to James and his family. To fund the project, James held a bake sale at St. Joseph’s Church in Kingston, with baked donations from about 20 of his friends, raising $550. The kiosk was built out of red cedar posts, stock, and shingles, with a large sheet of quarter inch plexiglass covering the map and trail details. “The plexiglass was the most expensive part of the kiosk,” Cohen said. He donated money left over from the project to Wildlands Trust, the organization that promotes land conservation throughout the area, and holds the conservation restriction to the Plympton Parks lands. Cohen wants to especially thank local builder Rick Burnet for his knowledge and guidance in planning and constructing the kiosk. His Eagle Scout Court of Honor will be held after the New Year.
