The VFW Post 399 kitchen needed a fresh paint job for a long time. To the rescue, Westport Scout Troop 100 volunteered to help with the kitchen clean up and expertly completed a beautiful paint job this week. In addition to earning merit badges, every Scout is required to formulate, organize and execute a project that benefits the community and have it approved by the council office. A special thank you to Troop 100 for all their dedication, determination and hard work in support of the Joseph J. Clinton VFW Post 399 kitchen project!
