Cliff Baker, overseeing the supervision of the project, is scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 70 in Lewisburg.<\/h1>\r\nFor each of five days, beginning last Thursday, 40 scouts began arriving by bus at Montwell Park early in the mornings to excavate succeeding sections of a walking path. Their efforts include installing retaining timbers at the edges of the walkway, and spreading crushed limestone, with a plastic surface material beneath to keep the gravel from sinking into the ground. The path will be five feet wide and run in a loop configuration in the grassy hillside area of the park. It is estimated that each crew should be able to construct 300 feet of path for a total of 1,500 feet of path to complete the main loop.\r\n\r\nThe National Jamboree occurs every four years, during which each scout is required to participate in a day of community service. This year, 40,000 scouts will be assisting in projects in every county of West Virginia.
