Eagle Scout project benefits St. Mary’s students

DOWNERS GROVE – Clayton Possidoni and other members of Boy Scout Troop 89 built a cedar composting bin for the garden at St. Mary of Gostyn in Downers Grove on Saturday.

The organic composting bin is Possidoni’s Eagle Scout project. The 17-year-old is a senior at North High School.

“St. Marys has sponsored his troop for years, so he wanted to give back to them with something they could use,” said Clayton’s mother, Tammy Possidoni.

She said the church and school are beginning a composting program for students this upcoming year.
