Girl Scouts donated cookies to Fort McCoy Soldiers, which they happily received outside the Installation Dining Facility. The Girl Scouts were from Troops 43210 and 44522 and made what has become an annual trip from Houston and Rushford, Minn., to deliver the cookies in person.

Employees from the Joint Venture Roads and Grounds Shop for the Fort McCoy Directorate of Public Works install a “Green Fence” in the South Post Military housing area. South Post Mayor Col. Rob Humphrey suggested privacy fencing be installed for the residents’ backyards bordering Ginger Road. That led to using trees as a natural “Green Fence” as an Earth Day project to provide both privacy and noise reduction from passing traffic. Crews installed 163 Black Hills Spruce, which are a hardy variety suited to South Post growing conditions.

Stevens (bottom) and Michael Dougherty (right), who also is with Outdoor Recreation, establish a new known-distance target stake. The work was done after sandpiles were added and rubber was placed on wooden platforms to protect the arrows from breakage. Work also included adding five 3-D targets to the elevated archery range and four block targets to the known-distance archery range.
