Scouts and Optimists go well together

Jordan Strahl and his father recently visited the Optimist Club of Beaverton, Oregon to request help for his Eagle Scout project. He plans to work with the K-9 unit of the Beaverton Police Department to build an 'A' frame training ramp, training fence, dog house and raised platforms. The estimated cost of the project is $1,250.72.

Jordan is a life scout with Troop 870, sponsored by the Beaverton Optimist Club, and club liaison Bob Arneson can be seen on Jordan's left.

Optimist Clubs often sponsor Boy Scout troops as their mission fits well with the purposes of Optimist International, especially in providing community service and fostering an interest in good government and respect for law.
