CHICO, Calif. - A local Boy Scout is taking part in a philanthropic community project by making sure a new flagpole is erected at the Wyatt Taylor Memorial Field in Chico.

Robbie Foster is a member of Troop 3. His troop memberscame out on Saturday to help with his Eagle project.

The flagpole will be 30 feet high and near Field 3 which is named after Wyatt Taylor. He passed away in 2016 from leukemia.

The field is home to Chico's East Side Little Leaguers, but will also open their doors to baseball players affected by the Camp Fire.

Foster said, "Many kids up in Paradise don't have fields to play here, so they're coming to Chico East Side,"

"It's important the field looks good for them, so we can all have fun and play baseball," he added.

They hope to have the flagpole installed by Monday which is well before opening day in March.

The weather over northern California has finally calmed substantially. Although it would be fantastic to have valley rain and mountain snow, we have some exceptional weather ahead for the end of October and beginning of November.
