Alex Harter, son of Scott and Lisa Harter, has completed his Eagle Scout Project. The Scout aluminum can recycling was no longer road worthy, so the project was to take a flatbed snowmobile trailer and construct a cage to collect aluminum cans for recycling. Alex went to his grandfather, Duwayne Orbeck for help. Orbeck had a used snowmobile trailer. Treated plywood was replaced on the deck before Orbeck welded a new steel frame for the cage. Alex, along with two of his Scouting friends, Brad Mies and Austin Roerick, attached chain link fencing to the sides and the top of the cage. Expenses have so far been collected with donations from the Kimball Fire Department and the Kimball Rod and Gun Club. The collected cans have been used over years to support the local Boy Scout Troop 357.
