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 Ceremony at Monday evening’s Town Board Meeting. 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 Monday evening’s Town Board meeting, I had the privilege of presenting a proclamation and medal to Carter Jansson who has recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in Troop Number 267. In order to complete his Eagle Scout project, Carter chose a project that would benefit the Rochester Refugee Resettlement Services. He organized a group of volunteers to paint the interior of a house in preparation for a family from Somalia to be able to move in. Over 30 volunteers and 150 hours of time and effort were dedicated towards completing this project. Thank you for your efforts towards a project that will make new members of our community feel loved and welcomed!”
