Boy Scouts from Troop 4 in Torrington offered their assistance to the Charlotte Hungerford Hospital on Saturday, July 13, 2013 with a clean-up and landscaping project outside of its Emergency Room entrance. The Scouts’ efforts included trimming the grass, laying mulch, and potting new shrubs to help in the beautification of the hospital.
“We are pleased to serve the Hospital, which has remained a cornerstone of service in northwest Connecticut for nearly 100 years, in any way that we can.” said Scoutmaster Wilbert Boles, Jr. “We are extremely grateful to the scouts for their strong and dedicated commitment to their hospital and community.” added Tim LeBouthillier, CHH Director of Community Relations.
The Scouts pride themselves in their record of volunteer service to the greater Torrington community.
