Presiding Officer Norma L. Gonsalves recently attended Boy Scout Troop 557 Eagle Court of Honor for Aaron Plass which was held at Temple Beth Am in Merrick.
Aaron, a resident of Merrick, undertook a project to renovate the Youth League and refinish a podium and portable ark which are used for many summer services at Temple Beth Am, his local synagogue. He organized over 90 volunteers and logged over 350 man-hours to complete his task.
“Aaron showed tremendous dedication and organizational skills to complete his project,” said Presiding Officer Gonsalves. “He has given back to his community something that can be used by all for many years to come. I am proud to honor him here today.”
