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 last night’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 last night’s Town Board meeting, I had the privilege of presenting a proclamation and medal to Erik Ervay who has recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in Troop Number 240. Erik attained the rank of Eagle Scout through his efforts towards a habitat improvement program at Braddock Bay Park. He worked with local companies to secure donations of 88 plants, shrubs, and trees for this project. In addition to this project, Erik also conducted three food drives to benefit the Greece Food Shelf. He has collected hundreds of pounds of food from his neighborhood and brought it to the food shelf. Thank you for your kindness towards helping those less fortunate and for your dedication to a project that will benefit the wildlife in Braddock Bay Park!
