Dana Harvey Honored by Suffolk County Deputy Presiding Officer Jay Schneiderman

Press Releases

The Eagle Scout worked to restore the bell tower of a historic church.

Sag Harbor, NY - March 10, 2014 - On Tuesday, March 4 at the Suffolk County Legislature’s General Meeting, Deputy Presiding Officer Jay Schneiderman (I-Montauk) presented Eagle Scout Dana Harvey with a proclamation for his hard work and dedication towards the restoration of the St. David African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Zion Church. 
 
As a member of Troop 455, Harvey earned approval from the Sag Harbor Village Historic Preservation and Architectural Review Board (ARB) for a building permit, which allowed him to restore the cupola bell tower as his Eagle Scout project. Harvey completed this project by raising over 6,000 dollars. This community project refurbished the church which was founded in 1840, and is believed to be a stop along the Underground Railroad. The rank of Eagle Scout is the Boy Scouts of America’s highest honor and is achieved by less than 3% of Boy Scouts nationwide. 
 
Dana is currently a freshman at Davidson College in North Carolina, where he is majoring in Physics. The bell at the tower is now ringing again after 25 years of silence, welcoming both church and community.
