Farmingville, NY - On June 1, Councilwoman Jane Bonner (right) joined volunteers from the Boy Scouts of America Venturing Crew during their beautification day at Robert E Reid, Sr. Recreation Center at the Town of Brookhaven’s Defense Hill Park in Shoreham. The crew is comprised of Boy and Girl Scouts from the community. The beautification project was part of Boy Scout Erich Fuhrmann's Eagle Scout project. Erich is a member of the Venturing Crew from the Troop 161 in Shoreham and earned his Eagle Scout rank with this project by extending the garden with two raised garden beds, adding two benches, and putting down fresh mulch in the garden and pumpkin trail.
Councilwoman Bonner said, “When you have so many scouts working together, a lot can get done. I thank Erich and everyone who volunteered to help with his Eagle scout project to make the recreation center a more beautiful place for our residents to enjoy.”
The Robert E Reid, Sr. Recreation Center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and the evenings and weekends for special programs. For more information and a schedule of programs at the center, visit the Town of Brookhaven’s website.
