Town Seal

Farmingville, NY – – At the December 1 Brookhaven Town Board meeting, Councilwoman Jane Bonner (back row, center) honored Julianna Gabrielsen (center) from Boy Scout Troop 2019 in Sound Beach. Julianna recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America. She is only the second female Eagle Scout from the Suffolk County Council and the first from Troop 2019. Julianna completed her Eagle Scout project for the Warrior Ranch Foundation in Riverhead after it was determined that they needed tack boxes for supplies. She built three boxes for the horses at the ranch that uses equestrian therapy for veterans and first responders who suffer from PTSD. She also held a car wash at the Mount Sinai Fire Department in August 2021, raising $1,200 which she presented as a donation to the ranch. She also canvased Home Depot, Lowes, and other building supply stores who donated all the material she and her more than 25 volunteers needed to complete the project. Pictured left to right with Julianna are Supervisor Ed Romaine; Councilman Neil Foley; Councilmember Jonathan Kornreich; Councilwoman Jane Bonner; Councilman Dan Panico; Councilman Kevin LaValle and Councilman Michael Loguecio.

Councilwoman Bonner said, “Leadership, hard work, and dedication to the community are what it means to be an Eagle Scout,” said Councilwoman Bonner. “I commend Julianna for being a role model and helping to break down barriers so other young women can follow their dreams. She is a wonderful example for everyone to follow.”
