Farmingville, NY – On March 18, Councilwoman Jane Bonner (left) attended the Boy Scouts of America Court of Honor ceremony for (left to right) James Gannon, Nicholas Mammina, Tyler Rouse and Charles Smith from Troop 204 in Miller Place. The event was held at Miller Place High School. James’ project was constructing two picnic tables for Hope House Ministries. Nicholas’ project consisted of making shelving for food storage at the St. Louis DeMontfort Church food pantry. Tyler built handicapped accessible picnic tables with benches for the Cedar Beach Nature Center in Mt. Sinai and Charles constructed a storage shed for the American Legion Wilson Ritch Post 432 in Port Jefferson Station. Pictured with Councilwoman Bonner and the scouts are Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker (second from right) and Miller Place School Board member, Noelle Dunlop (right). Councilwoman Bonner said, “Congratulations to James, Nicholas, Tyler and Charles for completing their projects and achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. Boy Scouts are the leaders of tomorrow, and from meeting these three outstanding young men, I can say that we’ll be in good hands.” Since the award was presented in 1912, no more than four percent of all Scouts have attained the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men.
