Suffolk County Legislator Steven J. Flotteron
presented a proclamation to scout Anthony J. DiMino in recognition of earning
his Eagle Scout – the highest
advancement rank in Boy Scouting. A member of Troop 95, in West Islip, DiMino
organized his fellow scouts to help with his project at Our Lady of Lourdes
Church in West Islip. At the request of the Parish Outreach Office, he
collected hygiene products that will be made available to parishioners in need.
Although the community is very generous with food donations, such items as
toiletries are often overlooked.
“Anthony is an
exceptional young man who chose to follow in his father’s footsteps, choosing
scouting to help others less fortunate. I am confident he will continue to be a
role model for others throughout his life,” said Legislator Flotteron.
