BECKLEY – The Reaching the Summit Community Service Initiative (The Initiative) will host demo projects in Mercer, Fayette, and Greenbrier counties the week of September 17 - 21 as a "dress rehearsal" for the 2013 National Scout Jamboree Days of Service, officials announced today.

The Mercer County demo project will take place Monday, September 17,  the Fayette County demo project  will take place Wednesday, September 19, and the Greenbrier County demo project will take place on Thursday, September 20, and Friday, September 21.

Those helping with the Mercer County Project will work to enhance the Bluefield City Park.  The project tasks include repainting basketball courts, maintenance of volleyball courts, and beautification of the park area. The refurbishment will serve to enhance the facilities and restore a sense of community pride for the citizens of Bluefield.

The Fayette County Project will support Wetlands Restoration of the Wolf Creek Industrial Park in Fayetteville. Volunteers will meet at 8AM to begin invasive plantremoval and gravel road work. In addition volunteers will also be establishing the area's premier aviary sanctuary, and will include educational instruction in common aviary related tasks.

The Greenbrier County demo project will be developing the Lewisburg Green Park in downtown historic Lewisburg. Tasks for the construction of the small community park include walking path designation, fence installation, and shelter and picnic table construction. In addition to these tasks, volunteers will also be actively involved in beautifying the area through weeding and gardening.
