Local scout working to show emergency personnel appreciation

KENNETT, MO (KAIT) – Fourteen-year-old Dalton Craig is stepping up to honor members and volunteers of the Kennett Fire Department, Kennett Police Department, Dunklin County Sheriff's Department, and the local Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Craig, the son of Robert and Beth Craig and a member of Boy Scout Troop 272, is planning an appreciation luncheon for the people who work daily to ensure the safety of residents in Kennett and Dunklin County as part of his Leadership Service Project to become an Eagle Scout.

Craig, his troop, local businesses, and volunteers will work together to make the meal.

The drop-in luncheon is Sat., Dec. 4 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Christian Life Center of the First United Methodist Church in Kennett. Due to the expected number of personnel, the scouts unfortunately will not be able to serve meals to family members or the general public.
