NIAGARA FALLS, NY (Oakwood Cemetery) - John Goodnick is taking on a monumental task. It's his goal to mark all the veteran's graves in Oakwood Cemetery. John decided to take this on as part of his project to become an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America. He and a crew of 10 to 15 volunteers were out in the heat on Saturday, August 4, 2012 marking each known veteran with a yellow flag.
Oakwood is proud to partner with area youth trying to make a difference in their community. This past year Chelsea Coates and Lauren Devantier chose Oakwood when they were looking for a Gold Award project. They acheived their goal last Fall, and the cemetery is all the better for it.
A big thank you goes out to John and his crew as he is on his toward his Eagle Scout status.
