CT Privy One – Installed

We’d like to thank Oak Ridge Troop 328 Scout Curtis Robertson for his Eagle Project, installing CT Privy One at the Head of Sequatchie! Curtis brought a crew to perform the work on Saturday, April 29th, and finished just in time to make it to prom!

Thank you Curtis & crew for helping us out with this important milestone!
