North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth, Town Clerk Wayne Wink, and Council Member Mariann Dalimonte recently attended an Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony for Boy Scout Troop 7 of Port Washington on Jan. 4 at the United Methodist Church.
Daniel Dzwlewicz, Christopher Pantelias, Gordon Shaub, and Spencer Yeh all achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, and were presented with proclamations of recognition by the town officials. The Eagle Scout rank is the highest achievement in Boy Scouting and requires scouts to earn at least 21 merit badges.
Daniel Dzwlewicz’s project consisted of creating a landscaped seating area at the Helen Keller National Center in Sands Point benefiting deaf-blind residents.
Christopher Pantelias constructing a permanent food donation box that was placed outside the local grocery store allowing residents to donate non-perishable food items to food pantries in the community on a continuing basis.
Gordon Shaub’s project consisted of redesigning and refurbishing a local memorial park for Robert H. Dayton, a fallen firefighter, who gave his life in the service of his community. Spencer Yeh’s Eagle Scout Service Project consisted of improving a local nature trail, the “Harbor Trail” by installing Bat Houses providing natural, environmentally friendly pest control for the area.
Boy Scout Troop 7 of Port Washington is run by Scoutmaster Andy Johns. For more information about the Boy Scouts of America in Nassau County, visit http://www.trcbsa.org/ or call 516-797-7600.
