This is their pledge, their sacred honor.Councilman Loguercio said, "Congratulations and thank you Jordan, for your hard work with this amazing project. I know this picnic table and walkway will be used by many of our residents for years to come. You are a wonderful young man with a bright future and you are a shining example of our youth and how they volunteer to do great things in our community".
