A Big Thanks to Landon Truchard
A big thanks to 14-year-old Eagle Scout Landon Truchard of Menifee for building a beautiful bench for the shelter's center courtyard for his Eagle Scout project. Taking 6 to 7 months to complete, it was well worth the wait because the quality is superb! The bench makes such a nice addition to this quiet area where staff can take a few minutes' break watching birds and the occasional desert tortoise meandering about when the wildlife temporarily stay at the shelter. Here Landon sits with AFV Executive Director Willa Bagwell and her assistant Kathy McIntire.
Landon has been a scout since he was 8 years old. He has earned 40 merit badges and has a goal of earning all 121. We are so happy he thought of the shelter when he began this latest project!
