MARK — Thomas Twardowski of Mark has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Twardowski, a freshman at Putnam County High School, is a member of Granville Troop 1093. He is the son of Joseph and Aimee Twardowski.
Twardowski’s project name was “Get Well Soon Comfort Bears.” He set up donation boxes at several locations in Putnam County to collect new stuffed animals and raised money to purchase new stuffed animals for the Children’s Hospital at OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria. He collected/purchased more than 800 stuffed animals. He chose this as his project because he has been a patient at the hospital two times and wanted to give back to the hospital.
