Presiding Officer Norma L. Gonsalves attended Boy Scout Troop 577’s Eagle Court of Honor for Eagle Scout James P. Medici and Jason John Rotolo at St. Frances de Chantal School in Wantagh.
For his project James, a resident of Bellmore, improved a building in parking field eight, Eisenhower Park, East Meadow. The finished project consisted of the construction of a large set of bookcases and painting the men’s dressing room, existing freestanding shelves, along with a vestibule area. James was also able to clean out a pantry area which contained expired items and removed rubbish out of a large attic. The Town of Hempstead uses this building to run programs that help the community.
For his project Jason, a resident of East Meadow, restored the hospitality pantry at St. Frances de Chantal Church. This project included stripping old contact paper from shelving, painting, cleaning and re-organizing the pantry.
“You have applied the skills you have learned in scouting to help benefit our community,” said Presiding Officer Gonsalves. “The extensive dedication and leadership of these young men are to be commended.”
