West Virginia’s Second Largest City

Sends Troops to Integrated Resources

Imagine 50,000 Scouts, Venturers, volunteers, and staff from all over the country, all gathered together for one big celebration of Scouting. Held once every four years, the National Jamboree is a chance to camp out with friends, meet new friends, try high-adventure activities, learn new skills, and enjoy the outdoors. Over 10 days, there are exhibits, stadium shows with entertainment and opportunities to work on merit badges — There is something for everybody.

Close to 50,000 people lodged at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in Fayette County during the July 15th through the 24th time period, making it the second largest “city” in West Virginia.

Among the hundreds of projects throughout southern WV which ranged from building trails to cleaning  streams and rivers, Integrated Resources Inc. was also a beneficiary of the good deeds and services that the Boy Scouts of America are historically noted for.  Integrated Resources Inc. who’s specialty is providing community services, found itself on the receiving end of possibly the largest community service project of its kind in the country.

Troop F303 primarily of the Florida/Georgia areas along with Venture Scouts, brought plenty of energy to help with various projects at IRI’s Maben complex.  A newly built Comprehensive Community Support Program building that will open its doors in the very near future, needed that finishing touch. That touch was provided form of landscaping. The Scouts showed their determination and stamina by taking on projects in which they had no prior experience and completing it with stunning results. They also pitched in to dig out and construct a badly needed retaining wall to protect property around the House of Wonder workshop as well as lending a hand in general cleaning and grounds maintenance.

The management and staff at Integrated Resources Inc. are not only grateful for the services that the Scouts provided, but are also honored to have met and worked with some of the finest young people in the country.
