Myers said the cost of the project, about $400, was paid for by donations from the community. Myers will be recognized for attaining the rank of Eagle Scout during a Court of Honor at 6 p.m. Sunday at the Blackridge Civic Association, 1200 Beulah Road, Churchill.

Quote: “I felt relieved to complete the project. It felt good to raise the flag for the first time.
