Farmingville, NY – On May 8, Councilwoman Jane Bonner (right) and Highway Superintendent Dan Losquadro attended the Sound Beach Civic Association meeting at the Sound Beach Fire Headquarters where they honored Eagle Scout Stephen Sarich from Troop 204 in Miller Place. Stephen’s Eagle Scout project was constructing benches and a planter at the Sound Beach Civic Association’s “Adopt-A-Spot” location on New York Avenue.
“Congratulations to Stephen for completing his Adopt-A-Spot project and achieving the rank of Eagle Scout,” said Councilwoman Bonner. “Scouts like Stephen are the leaders of tomorrow, and from what I can see of this outstanding youngster, I say that we’ll be in good hands.”
Highway Superintendent Losquadro said, "I commend Stephen for having the enthusiasm, dedication and discipline necessary to achieve the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. His project at the Adopt-A-Spot on New York Avenue will help to beautify and revitalize a piece of Brookhaven Town."
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.
