Supervisor Bill Reilich and the Greece Town Council Members Present Eagle Scout Award Medal at 2.15.24 Town Board Meeting

Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board Members Dave DiPonzio, Mike Bloomer, Bill Murphy, and Diana Christodaro for an official Eagle Scout Award Presentation Ceremony during the February 15, 2024 meeting of the Greece Town Board. 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 this proclamation and medal to the hard working and determined young man who has shown that commitment and perseverance lead to success” said Supervisor Bill Reilich.

Samuel Burke, a member of Troop #37, attained Eagle Scout Ranking through a project he completed for Homesteads for Hope Farms. He designed a Garden Café Seating area for this community farm. This project provides a relaxing covered pergola with landscaped gardens, flagpoles, and handicapped-accessible seating for the farm’s indoor and outdoor cafes. This project had almost 80 volunteers, over 1,800 service hours, and is valued at $15,000. This project earned Samuel “Eagle Project of the Month” for July and “Eagle Project of the Year”.  

The Boy Scouts of America, one of the United States largest youth organizations, is dedicated to preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling the values of the Scout Oath and Law. The Eagle Scout Award is attained after countless hours of hard work, sacrifice, and dedication to the scouting creed. For more information on the Boy Scouts of America, please visit their webpage
