BENTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)—You'll find boys and girls in Troop 892 of Boy Scouts of America.
"We're going to step up and do what we think is right," said Committee Chair Clyde Pickens.
This dynamic group of young people have been working hard to better their community.
"We see a need out here," said Pickens. "So we decided it was unfair for nobody else to step up. So we're going to stop and do what we think is right."
They've worked hard to revamp the Benton County Home Cemetery by rebuilding three wooden crosses, a fence, benches and a prayer garden.
"We're willing to do whatever it takes to bring this community together," said Pickens.
The troop held a dedication service Sunday to showcase their hard work. Although they were sending another message as well.
"Scouts BSA changed it's name and allowed girls in on February 1st," said Den Chief Daphney Pickens.
She is den chief of the scout troop. She said it is important to show that gender doesn't matter when you're working to better the community.
"I want them to take away the fact that we work together," said Daphney. "But it also brings up a lot entertaining campouts and meetings. The fact that we are in our community helping a lot."
8-year-old William Pickens is the only boy in Troop 892. He said he was excited to be a part of growing his community.
"I was excited because I get to help my parents out, give them ideas and I get to meet new kids my age," said William.
William said the goal is to recruit more people into Troop 892. He said he knows just how he'll impact kids his age to join.
"I'm going to get them to join by walking them through every single thing that I know about it and I'm going to tell them that it's super fun, there's lots of things to do," said William.
Troop 892 is looking to help organize a Christmas project soon.
