OHIO CITY — Approximately two years ago, the Ohio City Warrior Trail committee decided to start a project that would provide the trail with benches that would be paid for by collecting bottle caps. Since this was a youth program, they contacted Ben Reigle and the Cub Scouts of Rockford Post 98 to assist.

The Cub Scouts collected enough caps for five benches. Each bench took 1,250 caps and some expenses. Ohio City American Legion Post 346 covered the expenses. The Ohio City Warrior Trail Committee paid for the labor, transportation, placement, and the plates.
