Councilwoman Bonner said, "I commend this extraordinary group of young men for their commitment to scouting and their service to the community. Earning the rank of Eagle Scout is a great achievement that they should all be very proud of.”
Kyle Wrigley’s Eagle project was to enhance the grounds of Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck in Center Moriches. The storage area in the camp needed to be secluded from a neighboring property.
Vincent Uzzi’s Eagle project was to provide storage space for a veteran's home in North Bellport using an old shed from Gera Gardens.
William Loper’s Eagle project was at Camp De Wolfe in Wading River. Cabins at the camp are in need of constant care. William's project included the scraping off old paint on a cabin, pressure washing and giving it a new coat of paint.
Noah Blunnie’s Eagle project was at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck in Center Moriches. The seven benches surrounding the fire pit at the camp were in need of replacement. Under Noah's direction new benches were designed and then constructed using Mahogany, stainless steel hardware and heavy duty aluminum frames.
