Farmingville, NY - On January 26, Supervisor Ed Romaine (right) and Suffolk County Legislator Al Krupski (left) were on hand at the Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony for Anthony Levene (center) from Boy Scout Troop 221 in Manorville. The event was held at the Manorville Fire Department Headquarters. Anthony’s Eagle Scout project was to construct three overhangs to provide shelter for rescued goats at the Double D Bar Ranch in Manorville. The ranch seeks to provide safe homes for previously abused or unwanted animals.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.
