On May 28th, the Town of Marlboro had its War Memorial rejuvenated byTroop 72 in conjunction with the Marlboro Fire Department. Troop 72 cleaned it out as a service project. The memorial and walkways had not been cleaned in years and it got a makeover just in time for Memorial Day. The fire department provided the water and the troop provided the Scoutpower! Thanks to Mark Ciaglia for sharing their service project with everyone.
