H.S. junior organizes successful expo/fair

Zach Brokaw, Jana Peppin
Last Sunday a very profession expo and fair was held at Woodstock (Ill.) North High School. It was put together as an Eagle Scout project by Zach Brokaw, a member of the Class of '13 and resident in Wonder Lake. This was as professional an expo and fair as I have attended in any venue, anywhere.

Booths were well-spaced, so that displays were not within elbow-crunching narrow spaces. In addition to the displays, there were demonstrations and hands-on activities for attendees. And a number of high school students were present to man refreshment tables.

Zach is a member of a Boy Scout Troop in Wonder Lake, where Mrs. Jana Peppin is one of the Scout leaders. One of her sons is an Eagle Scout, and another son is on his way to completing requirements as an Eagle Scout. To become an Eagle Scout, all requirements must be completed before Age 18.

Many thanks to Zach, all volunteers, the school staff, the vendors who gave up a Sunday and to the families who attended.

Well done, Zach!
