An Eagle Scout candidate from Bristolville raises money to build a swing set for Hannah's House

Updated:

VIENNA. Ohio - A project by an Eagle Scout candidate from Bristolville will help children spend some quality play time with their mothers.

Stephen Sprague, 17, planned and delivered a pulled pork dinner to raise funds for a swing set. The play area will sit behind Hannah's House, which is part of the Warren Family Mission.

Women who have problems with addiction, who have been abused or who are homeless, can stay for up to one year to rebuild their lives.

The swing set and play area will take two days to complete and will be used when the children visit on weekends.

"I just wanted to help the kids here. I know if your parents are going through a hard time the children they are going through a hard time also. I just thought they could use something down here because there's not all that much to do down here," said Eagle Scout candidate Stephen Sprague of Boy Scout Troop 75.

Members of Troop 75 assisted Sprague in this Scout project along with Bud Rumbarger Construction and Warren firefighter Don Beauchene.
