Jordan Peterson of Sycamore Boy Scout Troop 2810 recently completed his Eagle Scout project, renovating the south side of the stone cross monument at Mount Carmel Cemetery in Sycamore. Jordan and the volunteers he recruited leveled the ground around the cross, constructed a gravel path with a border, installed a granite bench and planted landscaping around the cross and bench. Jordan said he chose the project to "give back to St. Mary's Church for everything they have done for me."
