The North Baltimore Garden Club has offered to landscape around the pillars in the spring.
These men and organizations are a reminder to Noah and his family, just how blessed we are to live in a community of such giving and supportive people.
Noah is a sophomore at North Baltimore High School. He is the son of Kirk Pelton (NB) and Jim and Mary Casey (NB). He is also the grandson of Mike and Diane Julien (NB), Pat Huffman (Findlay) and the late Butch Pelton.
Along with Boy Scouts, Noah is active in Cross Country, Track, Student Council, Tri-M and he is a percussionist in the band. He is also a member of Holy Family Catholic Church.
Please take a moment to visit the cemetery and see the completed pillars.
