Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board Members Mike Barry, Josh Jensen, Bill Murphy, and Diana Christodaro for an official Eagle Scout Award Presentation Ceremony during the Town Board Meeting on Tuesday, January 21, 2020. The Town of Greece Eagle Scout Recognition Medal is presented to all Boy Scouts who have recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in their local troop.
“It is an honor for me to present proclamations and medals to the hard working and determined young men who have shown that commitment and perseverance lead to success” said Supervisor Bill Reilich. “At Tuesday evening’s Town Board meeting, I had the privilege of presenting a proclamation and medal to Gavin Watt who has recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in Troop Number 31. In order to complete his Eagle Scout project, Gavin planned and constructed a 10×12 foot storage shed that will be used to store donations to the Greece Ecumenical Clothing Closet. Several hours were spent designing the structure, raising donations, and constructing the shed. After the completion of the shed, Gavin installed gutters, erosion rocks, and wire mesh around the bottom and cleared out vines that grew near the fence. Gavin organized family, friends, schoolmates, and sports teammates to assist in completing the project. In addition to constructing the shed, Gavin also repaired the existing donation drop off shed by reroofing, painting, and installing new gutters and trim work. Thank you for choosing a project that will be very useful to the Greece Ecumenical Clothing Closet!”
