Farmingville, NY - On January 26, Supervisor Ed Romaine (left) and Suffolk County Legislator Al Krupski (right) were on hand at the Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony for Sean Patrick McInerney (center) from Boy Scout Troop 29 in East Moriches. The event was held at the East Moriches Fire House. Sean’s Eagle Scout project was to construct two planters and a bench at Little Flower Children Services in Wading River. He also planted vegetable seeds to provide food for the children and a lesson on the cycle of life.To become an Eagle Scout, one must earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, demonstrate leadership, and perform an approved community service project. Since the award was presented in 1912, no more than four percent of all scouts have attained the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million scouts.
