A Smithtown Eagle Scout provided a makeover for the Medford campus of Developmental Disabilities Institute (DDI) for his community service project.
James Galley renovated the Young Autism Program (YAP) playground and the campus's bus entrance.
According to a release from DDI, Galley refurbished the playground by sanding and painting the swing sets a bright red paint, painting the railroad ties a bold blue and painting the top railroad ties a bright yellow so the children would be able to distinguish where the play area ended.
Galley also improved the bus entrance by removing old railroad ties and replacing them with new ties, adding new mulch, white rocks, plants and a cement bench.
"We thank James for his time and commitment to DDR and congratulate him on his accomplishments," said Dan Rowland, DDI's Director of Development, in a release.
