Volunteers also cleaned up the park's drainage pump station. Josh, a member of Lodi Boy Scout Troop 316, organized the tree-planting and park cleanup in an effort to earn the prestigious Eagle rank.

An aspiring Eagle Scout finished a beautification project at
Kofu Park last Saturday in preparation for Lodi's 50th anniversary
next year with its sister city in Japan.
Sixteen-year-old Josh Edmondson had 10 Cub Scouts help him plant
three trees, deweed and replace wood paneling that shields city
pumps from view. It took about seven hours.
