The Tiger Cubs from Cub Scout Pack 360 offered to help plant flowers in the Elmwood Park. We needed flowers planted around where the Elmwood Park sign is located and they did a great job! The sign is being freshened up and it will be reinstalled soon! Thanks to Jennifer Brettmann for thinking of the park!
