A PIECE OF HISTORY: Eagle Scout Steven Fuchs digitized the first ten years of Town Topics for his leadership-service project. The results will be fully searchable and readily accessible via a server in the Princeton Public Library.

Ellen Gilbert

Princeton High School senior Steven Fuchs didn’t clear a hiking trail, recycle old glasses, or build a birdhouse for his Eagle Scout service project.

Ellen Gilbert
