Farmingville, NY – On January 5th, Councilwoman Jane Bonner attended the Eagle Scout Ceremony for Gordon Haner and Kasey Wallace held at Mount Sinai High School. Councilwoman Bonner presented them with "Certificates of Congratulations" for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.
Eagle Scout Gordon Haner’s project was done at the Town’s Satterly Landing Park in Mount Sinai Harbor. He and other scouts installed a new roof on the kiosk, fixed benches, replaced the border around a large tree, planted a garden and laid stepping stones around it.
Eagle Scout Kasey Wallace’s project was done at the Town’s Holtsville Ecology site and included building three new display cases for the bee exhibit which provides educational information about bees and honey making. He also worked with other scouts to construct a fence to protect a display hive and donated educational literature about bees that are now available in the display.
“I commend Gordon and Kasey for their service to the community and completing these projects that will benefit the residents of Brookhaven Town. I also thank their parents for the support they give to these exceptional young men. They are the leaders of tomorrow and set a great example for all to follow.”
Since the first Eagle Scout Award was presented in 1912, no more than 4 percent of all Scouts have attained the Eagle Scout rank.
