Charlie McCarthy, an Eagle Scout candidate from Oconomowoc, recently had three benches constructed to overlook the Cottonwood Wayside. The benches were built and stained by volunteers on the project that Charlie oversaw and the benches were placed on decorative brick so that people using the wayside now have vantage points of the oak savannah and the pond done below. The Village of Hartland is appreciative of Charlie's and the scouts' efforts.
