Thank you from a Bethel Park resident

Our FaceBook page received the following message. Thank you again to everyone who participated. You represented Boy Scouts and our troop well and the community noticed! 

I don't know how to get in touch with the boy scouts that worked so hard cleaning up Baptist Rd in Bethel Park two Weeks ago so I am hoping it's your troup. I wanted to thank them so very much for the wonderful job they did as well as the adults that were with them! Their efforts did not go unnoticed!!! Litter is a pet peave of mine and I try to keep the road clear around my home. Baptist is a dangerous and busy road and I am older so it's a little scary for me. Please congratulate each and everyone of those wonderful young men. And let them know how much we appreciated their efforts!!!!! Elaine Pusateri
