Parks completed a patio expansion in the Manor’s D1 unit courtyard, dedicating over 200 hours of service, seeking donations and organizing several fundraisers to raise $1,700 in order to complete the project.  He led a group of 40 to 50 scouts and volunteers to plant, pull weeds and construct the patio all in one day during the month of July.
