Building Benches

WINNSBORO – Winnsboro Eagle Scout Benjamin Truitt, 17, donated four oak benches, including the one he is sitting on, and a display table to the Fairfield County Market building during a short ceremony Saturday morning during the Farmers Market. Truitt, a rising senior at York Preparatory School, handcrafted the furniture as his Eagle Scout 2020 project.
