The now has new vegetable gardens, and freshly-mulched, replanted flower beds. The effort is thanks to thanks to an Eagle Scout project guided by Port Washington resident David Wolmark.
Wolmark, 14, accomplished this project with the help of his peers from Boy Scout Troop 7 of Port Washington, on June 2.
Wolmark, 14, choose the senior center on Manorhaven Blvd. as the location for his Eagle Scout project with his grandparents in mind.
“My grandparents recently moved to Port Washington and I know if they would want to have a landscaped senior center so would other seniors in this community,” Wolmark noted. “I saw the need to refurbish these flower beds and it was a perfect fit for my Eagle Scout project.”
Planted behind the center, the vegetable garden features string beans, tomatoes, and a variety of herbs.
Councilwoman Dina DeGiorgio gave the effort high marks.
“It’s always great to see this true sense of community from our youth,” she said. “David and the rest of Troop #7 deserve a round of applause for making Port Washington a better place to live.”
