LMP KIOSK DEDICATED TO ANN WOODALL

Laurel Mountain Park board members are pleased with Jason Miller’s Eagle Scout project—a kiosk on the side of Walnut Road on the Park property.

They are also pleased with the involvement maintained by former resident Anne Woodall, who now resides in Ligonier Township.

The two pleasures came together on October 7, 2013, when Ann and Jason were honored guests at a tea held at Gretchen Griffith’s home and hosted by the Park board.

Jason chose his Eagle Scout project because of his past connection with Laurel Mountain Pool. He swam there when he was younger, and considers the pool is the best-kept secret in Laughlintown.During the time Jason was seeking a project members of the borough and Park Association were considering constructing a kiosk as a communication tool for the community.

Sue Crouse, resident and member of Laurel Mountain Borough council, supported the sign to increase visibility of community meetings and events for both residents and visitors.

The sign was dedicated to Ann, who with her late husband Robert, raised their family in the Borough. Throughout the years they not only enjoyed the benefits of the pool and shelter house, they contributed to the growth and the improvement of the facilities. Their ongoing support provided encouragement to the community.

Ann was invited to a surprise tea, and expressed amazement that the kiosk was dedicated to her. Board members (and others) had maintained secrecy throughout the preparations.

Ann was presented with a certificate containing a borough seal from the 1940s, found in the late Craig Miller’s papers. She also received a lifetime membership to the pool.

  1. It is wonderful to see what such a small community can accomplish when everyone works together. Thanks to everyone that helped to make this project a reality. As a father of four small curious boys who enjoy the pool on a daily bases its important to respect and remember the history, present and future of such communities they grow up. I never met Ann Woodall but we all share the love for our small community and learn to nourish and respect it – Thank you –
