Noah Warren, a 14-year-old Boy Scout from Dora, is working to improve his community.

Warren is a member of Boy Scout Troop 120, and was assigned to do an Eagle Project. Warren visits Dora Pond with his family, and has often noticed that there are no picnic tables for use by families who may want to have a snack or meal at the park.

“People might want to picnic, and they haven’t had any tables,” Warren said.

For his Eagle Scout Project, Warren plans to build picnic tables with his dad for the pond area. As a way to fund the project, Warren held a car wash Saturday at O’Reilly Auto Parts in Sumiton. Along with washing cars, Warren also sold hot dogs and snacks with proceeds going to the project.

“It makes me feel great that he’s wanting to give back,” Noah’s father, Kevin Warren, said.

Misty Warren, Noah’s mother, also expressed how happy and proud she is that her son wants to do something that will benefit the community.

Dora mayor Chris Edwards feels that Noah’s effort will add more of an aesthetic appeal to the park.

“It’s going to add to the beauty and usage of the facility,” Edwards said.

Edwards also commended Noah’s scout troop, which helped with the construction of a building at the park that will be used for scout meetings in the future.

Noah has done many other things to help his community, including delivering food and collection of items given to those affected during the April 27 storms. He also helped with the Senior Citizen Flag Ceremony in Sumiton.

Noah Warren said he expects to begin construction of the picnic tables soon.
