On May 19, Boy Scout Troop 140 completed its annual Naugatuck River projects. The west bank of the river south of Huntingdon Avenue was cleaned and a 55-gallon barrel was removed from the river. Many bluebird and tree sallow houses were refurbished and some new ones were erected. Rose of Sharon bushes and irises were planted near the birdhouses. Many years ago, Troop 140 started doing these projects under the sponsorship on NRWA. In recent years they have continued the projects as self-Troop-stewardship.
