Boy Scouts construct gazebo in Lutz in memory of their friend | Community Spirit
Lutz, FL -- Mitch Bowers was hit and killed by a vehicle last January. He was 12 years old.
Bowers was a member of Boys Scout Troop 314 which currently has about twenty members who live in Lutz, Odessa and Land O' Lakes.
The boys wanted to do something in memory of their fellow scout and decided to construct a new gazebo at Lake Park in Lutz.
The gazebo will be the venue for birthday parties, weddings and other events.
The project was part of a year-long effort to build the gazebo which cost $3,000.
It took an estimated 800 man hours to construct and the boys finished the project in mid-February.
The scouts were able to learn organizational skills during the project in addition to honoring their friend.
