Smithtown, NY - July 2, 2018 - Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta recognized John M. Bennett of Boy Scout Troop 7 at his recent Eagle Scout Court of Honor. John earned the esteemed rank of Eagle Scout by completing a labor intensive community based project at the Sweetbriar Nature Center in Smithtown, NY. Under John’s leadership, repairs were made to a sandbox, a painting board and several signs. In addition, he designed and built tree stump tables and chairs, as well as five 5.5ft x 5.5ft wooden platforms surrounded by curtains that will be used as stages for various activities.
“It is always an honor for me to be invited and attend an Eagle Court of Honor as Eagle Scouts attain this achievement while still a teenager and it is a recognition that can never be taken away,” said Legislator Rob Trotta. “I applaud his parents, family, friends, scout leaders and fellow scouts who helped him to achieve this goal,” added Legislator Trotta.
Legislator Robert Trotta represents the 13th Legislative District.
