Knights of Columbus support Eagle Scout’s project at Camp Fatima

GILFORD — Ian McNeil, a Life Scout in By Scout Troop 243, is working on Eagle Scout project which will see as many as three handicap amps installed at Camp Fatima in Gillmanton Iron Works.

He is asking donors to make their checks payable to Troop 243 and in the memo section write Ian McNeil's Eagle project and send it 26 Orchard Drive, Gilford NH 03249.
