The Boy Scouts of Troop 499 gave back to the community in September, when a work party of about 20 Scouts and parents spent a day with pick-axes and shovels improving a section of the east May Creek Trail.

The new trail segment is narrower and steeper as it descends into a ravine close to May Creek. It is a little piece of green paradise to be enjoyed by all.

There have been numerous Eagle Scout projects along Newcastle trails and in parks. Anyone who would like to join a trail work party should email

On Nov. 17, Troop 499 will be active again in the community doing a Newcastle street cleanup. As new businesses and more people move into the area, more trash tends to accumulate. Troop 499 will be out in force keeping the streets clean.

The Scouts would like to thank Peggy Price, of Newcastle Trails, who guided the group in trail making improvements, and the Newcastle Chamber of Commerce, the charter organization for Troop 499 and Cub Scout Packs 497 and 738.
