6 SCOUTING NOVEMBER 21-27, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION LINCOLN – A pair of horseshoe pits, used by various community members outside the Columbus Club of Lincoln, were sinking into the dirt below them until a local Eagle Scout candidate decided to inject new life into the club's recreation area. The Columbus Club of Lincoln opens its doors to community mem- bers on a daily basis, including for youth sports leagues, family gather- ings, local fundraisers and Knights of Columbus meetings. In addition to a T-ball field outside of the club, amenities included horse- shoe pits that had long ago fallen into disrepair. With some help from members of his Boy Scout troop, Joseph Volpe spent several weeks refurbishing the horseshoe pits. Volpe, of Troop 1 Manville, com- pleted his Eagle Project as a result of his work at the club, where he restored the horseshoe pits by replac- ing the old wood with new wood, adding fresh sand, and laying con- crete under the wooden boards. He also installed a new park bench and built and installed wooden score- board near the pits. His project, made possible with help from Douglas Lumber and Smithfield Peat, is the second to be completed by Troop 1 Manville at the Columbus Club in recent months. In late September, Troop 1 Manville's Matthew Riendeau com- pleted his Eagle project by installing a new memorial for military veterans on the club property, which includes flag poles and a polished stone monument dedicated to each branch of service. Club President Raymond Hedenskog said he's grateful for the Scouts who have chosen to give back to a club that believes so strongly in charity and helping others. The club has served as a meeting place for the Scouts and a fundrais- ing hub for their Eagle projects, as well as a gathering place for Lincoln Little League, for the Rhode Island Grey Birds, a group of Vietnam and Korean War Veterans, church groups, and a place where, this December, a group of soldiers currently deployed in the Middle East will celebrate their homecoming. The Columbus Club of Lincoln is sustained by paid hall rentals and a liquor license, but the club offers the hall up at no charge for fundraisers by nonprofits and other charitable efforts.
