Tim Pierce, left, Nick Flanagan, David O’Donoghue and T.J. Noonan — members of Boy Scout Troop B424 of Plymouth, Mass. — were among those participating in a community service day Thursday in Thurmond. The Reaching The Summit Community Service Initiative community service days are a combined effort of the Boy Scouts of America and the Citizens Conservation Corps of West Virginia during the 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree. The boys, their leaders and local volunteers were helping place bricks — some engraved for memorial or family purposes, some highlighting the town’s rich history, and some blank — on a sidewalk in front of the Thurmond Post Office. Other projects in Thurmond this week include trail building, work on the town hall, and signage.
