WASHTA - Thanks to a lot of help, Tristan Moffitt of Pierson reached his goal and is ready to build a Prayer Garden.

Moffitt has chosen to build a 20' round Prayer Garden for the Washta United Methodist Church for his Eagle Scout Project. He is the Assistant Senior Patrol Leader of Troop 259 in Moville and attends the Washta United Methodist Church.

The Prayer Garden will be raised about a foot above ground, and Moffitt plans to use landscaping blocks around the outside of the garden and stack the blocks three high.

Half of the Prayer Garden will be concrete with two benches and will be wheel chair accessible. The other half of the Prayer Garden will have three crosses with lighting. The center cross will be approximately nine feet above ground and the other two crosses will be approximately six feet above ground. A variety of flowers will be planted on this half to give it the finishing touch.

Moffit has scheduled a build date for Saturday, Sept. 22 starting at 8 a.m. If you have time and wish to help out there will be a variety of jobs that will need to be done and lunch will be provided for those who help. Moffit also will have to keept track of all hours spent working on this project so there will be a sign-up sheet for you to put your name, start and end times.

If you plan on helping out, here are couple things you may need: work gloves, clothing you don't mind to get dirty in, shovels, wheel barrels, post hole diggers, and any other tools you think may be helpful.

Moffitt thanks everyone (past, present, and future) for their help in Scouting and in making this project possible.

He hopes to see you there.
