Burt Lumber recently facilitated the addition of a memorial bench to “Carmen’s Corner,” dedicated to Carmen Ramos Calixto Laas, a beloved member of the community who made her mark caring for the grounds and watering the flowers at the intersection of Pulaski Road and New York Avenue. After connecting with Carmen’s daughter, Lehti, at a neighborhood beautification meeting, local artisan Con Artist enlisted the assistance of Burt Lumber to create the beautiful bench which now sits there...a true community effort!
Skyeler Zachoury Jackson of Troop 113 in Centerport recently earned the prestigious honor of Eagle Scout after completing construction on a new staircase and patio at the Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center in Huntington.
Jackson received ample assistance from the community, both in the form of workers helping with the manual labor required, and in donations of needed supplies and funds. Burt Lumber contributed a saw blade, screws, work gloves and safety glasses, as well as a portion of the wood that was used for the project.
Skyeler’s Eagle Court of Honor Ceremony was held on June 24th of 2018, and was attended by family, friends, fellow Scouts and community supporters, including Raf and Evangelina Lanza of Burt Lumber.
Burt Lumber congratulates Skyeler on this outstanding achievement!
