Legislator Steve Rhoads and Presiding Officer Norma L. Gonsalves attended Boy Scout Troop 192’s Eagle Court of Honor for Eagle Scout Fredrick Schneider at the Bellmore Presbyterian Church in Bellmore. For his project Fredrick, a resident of Bellmore, built 200 wooden crosses and storage bins for the Grace Episcopal Church in Massapequa. The crosses were laid out for Memorial Day weekend in remembrance of the men and women who have lost their lives in military service.
“This project is a great memorial to those who have lost their lives serving our country,” said Presiding Officer Gonsalves. “Congratulations on your achievement and I look forward to seeing all you accomplish in the future.”
“Congratulations on achieving the prestigious honor of Eagle Scout,” said Legislator Rhoads. “This was a job well done.”
