Smithtown, NY - April 16, 2014 - Suffolk County Legislator Robert Trotta honored Thomas J. Izzo of Boy Scout Troop 7 for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout at his recent Court of Honor held at the Sts. James & Philips Church. His Eagle Scout Project was to refurbish the basement in the Old Church of St. James & Philips, where youth groups meetings are held. He cleared everything out, waterproofed the basement, installed new sheetrock for the walls and ceiling, added molding, spackled and painted the room and refinished the floor.
Legislator Trotta said, “I am extremely impressed that Thomas has been so active in his troop and that his parents have also been involved with the Boy Scouts, including his older brother Anthony who achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, too. His accomplishment has set a high standard of commitment and dedication, which I hope will inspire the youth of our great County of Suffolk.”
