Farmingville, NY - Recently, Councilwoman Valerie M. Cartright attended the Eagle Scout Court of Honor for scouts from Setauket Troops 70 and 427.
“In the words of the Eagle Scout Promise, Eagles do their best each day to make their training and example, their rank and their influence count strongly for better scouting and for better citizenship in their troop, in their community and in their contact with other people,” as stated by the Boy Scouts of America. The Eagles exemplified this promise through the efforts and work they have done in the community.
Scout James Kennedy constructed wooden cornhole boards, ring toss, and tic-tac-toe game sets that are now being utilized and enjoyed by the children of Saints Philip and James Parish and School. Scout Coccaro showcased his skills through the improvement and accessibility of Stony Brook’s Jazz Loft’s outdoor space. Scout Robinson organized and created storage for Lego sets and donated them to the Dew Drop Inn in Patchogue and Scout Carson built bat houses at Messiah Lutheran Church in Setauket. Each Scout has become an Eagle with multiple merits, awards, and recognition under their name that highlights even further their deserving of this honor.
“The Scouts do not let civic needs go unattended and their efforts are invaluable to the community,” said Councilwoman Cartright. “We are eager to see the effective impact these Eagle Scouts will be making not only in the Town of Brookhaven but in the nation.
