Members of Boy Scout Troop 61 watch as concrete fills a hole for a foundation for a cross, which is an Eagle Scout project of Dakota Zinn. The cross will be 25 feet tall with a red flame, set at the west campus of the First United Methodist Church near the U.S. Highway 40/Kansas Highway 10 interchange.
Scouts work Saturday at the church west of Lawrence. The new cross will be visible from K-10.
Dakota Zinn, front, and Drew Sheppard, both 14, help haul away dirt at the project site. Dakota planned the cross for his Eagle Scout project.
