ROCKY POINT, NY – On Sunday, September 6th, a representative from Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker’s office joined boy scouts, troop leaders and scout families to honor Troop 244’s newest Eagle Scouts: Justin Giardelli, Christopher Carman and Chase Fusaro. The ceremony was held outdoors at the Trinity Lutheran Church.
It is wonderful to see the bright young leaders that have come from Troop 244, said Legislator Anker.
Justin, Chase and Christopher have proven through not only their projects, but their work as troop members that they are deserving of the honor of being Eagle Scouts. They have aided in the beautification of the community and have provided a great community service to those in need of support here at home and overseas. It is my honor to congratulate them on their accomplishments and wish them luck with their future endeavors.
Eagle Scout is the highest rank that a scout can receive. It requires hard work and dedication for a scout to earn 21 merit badges, complete a community service project and undergo a lengthy review process. Justin Giardelli, Christopher Carman and Chase Fusaro all received the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout after completing their community service projects. Justin gathered donations and construed “To-Go Bags” filled with various personal necessities that were donated and distributed to veterans in need at the Northport VA Medical Center. Christopher constructed a tri-sided bench that now surrounds a tree at the Trinity Lutheran Church. Chase organized donation drives for personal care items and assembled donation boxes that were sent to United States military troops overseas through the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
