Scout Troop 255 and Webelos Scouts from Pack 255 at Bartlett United Methodist Church helped to make Bartlett’s public spaces cleaner and more attractive. They held a litter pick-up day on Sunday, Feb. 24, at the BMX course at Nesbit Park/Stanky Creek Trails.

Community service hours are a mandatory part of rank advancement in the Scouts and are required for some merit badges.
