As part of his Eagle Scout project, Aaron Metz, a senior at Sherando High School in Frederick County, has been working with the Stephens City Moose Lodge to install three large flag poles along with lighting on the lodge property. The Virginia Department of Transportation donated the metal poles, and Aaron’s next step was to reach out to Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) for help installing the poles.
To help Aaron complete his project, REC worked with him to donate the time, equipment and manpower to install the flag poles to their proper depth. Travis See, senior distribution designer and surveyor, worked to design the project and Tim Campbell, lead lineman, and David Annalora, lineman, worked to set the flag poles on The Moose Lodge property.
"REC strives to be active in the community and we try to give back as much as we can," said See. "I live in Stephens City, so I drive by the flag poles often, it definitely gives me a sense of pride to know that not only did we help this young man out, but that we were also able to honor our country."
