LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Hub City is now a little bit greener thanks to Lubbock Parks And Recreation and the South Plains Council of the Boy Scouts of America.   Scouts and volunteers planted 694 trees at the Lubbock Youth Complex to celebrate the centennial of boy scouting.   All of these trees are also part of the city's plan for the 16-field complex, which opened in April of 2009.

John Thompson, volunteer, says "We have all types of youth, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Scout alums.  It's a great project to help the community and the complex." 

Area Scouts also planted a tree in honor of Astronaut and Eagle Scout Captain Jim Lovell for his service in scouting.  Mayor Tom Martin took part in that ceremony.
