SHOREHAM, NY – On Saturday, June 1st, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker attended an Eagle Scout Court of Honor Ceremony at St. John the Baptist in Wading River to honor Troop 161’s newest Eagle Scouts: Eric Di Lisio, Erich Fuhrmann, John German, Ronan O’Toole, Hunter Pozgay, Joseph Pozgay, Jacob Raynor and Matthew Sherman. Legislator Anker was joined by Scoutmaster Matthew Yakaboski, Troop 161 Assistant Scoutmasters, and other elected officials.

“The projects by our local scouts are vital assets to our community. Through their hard work, dedication, and commitment to scouting, these young men have proven themselves to be extraordinary leaders. Their Eagle Scout accomplishments will set great examples for the younger scouts in Troop 161. I congratulate them all and wish them continued success in their future endeavors,” said Legislator Anker

Legislator Anker also attended the garden dedication for Troop 161’s fallen Scout brother, Andrew McMorris. Eagle Scout Joseph Pozgay created the garden as part of his Eagle Scout project to honor Andrew’s memory.

Eagle Scout is the highest rank that a scout can receive, and requires the scout to earn 21 merit badges, complete a community service project, and undergo a lengthy review process. For more information about the Boy Scouts of America and the rank of Eagle Scout, please visit
