Legislator Anker Congratulates Troop 64 Eagle Scouts

CORAM, NY – On Saturday, June 12th, a representative from Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker’s office joined boy scouts, troop leaders and scout families and friends to honor Troop 64’s newest Eagle Scouts: John DeLucia, Jacob Yonkes, Richard Engesser, and Charles Wolff. The ceremony was held outdoors at the St. Francis Cabrini Church Parish Center in Coram.

It is wonderful to see the bright young leaders that have come from Troop 64, said Legislator Anker. John, Jacob, Richard and Charles 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, assisted in raising money for historical preservation efforts, and have upgraded the equipment at a local education center. 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. John DeLucia, Jacob Yonkes, Richard Engesser, and Charles Wolff all received the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout after completing their community service projects. John constructed six book shelves for the Book Barn at Ketcham Inn Foundation, a foundation dedicated to the restoration of local historic landmarks, which will assist the Ketcham Inn Foundation in their fundraising efforts to continue restoring local historic sites such as Terry-Ketcham Inn and the Havens Homestead. Jacob constructed a deck outside of St. Francis Cabrini Church in Coram, which will provide a peaceful outdoor space for the priests and deacons of the St. Francis Cabrini Church to meet, meditate and pray. Richard upgraded and renovated a storage shed at the Suffolk County Farm and Education Center, a center that provides hands-on research-based learning to the residents of Suffolk County, which will improve the center’s ability to educate and engage with the community. Charles constructed replacement benches for a pavilion also at the Suffolk County Farm and Education Center, which will be utilized by the center for teaching and various activities for community members.
