Summit Project Honors The Late Sue Lindstrom

November 02, 2018

Sue Lindstrom was a great supporter of Scouting. The mother of our Council Registrar, Jane Lindstrom, and former manager of the West Pine Scout Shop, Sue was involved in Scouting for nearly 35 years. Although Sue passed away on June 17, 2018, her memory will live on thanks to a Venturing Summit Project.

Ally Both, a Venturer with Crew 2921 chartered to Barrington Elementary School PTA, recently constructed a new Summit Trail and Rain Garden at World Bird Sanctuary. Ally dedicated the rain garden to Sue Lindstom in honor of her service to Scouting.

The trail was designed to connect four other trails together allowing hikers to complete a circle around the Sanctuary. The rain garden was built from large stones and plants with the purpose of stopping water overflow from spilling onto the trail. Ally completed the work with the help of nearly 100 people who spent a combined 500 hours of service on the project.
