Greenlawn, NY - August 17, 2016 - This past Saturday, the 18th Legislative District welcomed its newest Eagle Scout, Sean D. Burns of Boy Scout Troop 32 in Greenlawn.  Sean celebrated his Court of Honor at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church in Centerport with his family, friends, and fellow scouts.

“The tasks and skills necessary to attain the rank of Eagle Scout are difficult, but when accomplished develop leadership, self-reliance, and other admirable qualities needed for future successes,” noted Suffolk County Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D. 

“I congratulate and wish Sean the best of luck in all that he chooses to do.  As a third generation Eagle Scout, I hope that Sean will do as his father and grandfather have before him, and share the knowledge and skills that he has fostered throughout his scouting journey with other young people wishing to emulate his example and our community at large.”

Sean’s service project involved replacing the sign at the entrance of the Long Island Railroad Station in Greenlawn and making landscape improvements to the surrounding area.  After raising funds through a series of car washes and garnering support from local business and community stakeholders, the project finally came to life on October 10, 2015.  His thoughtful and much needed contribution will be enjoyed by residents and visitors of Greenlawn for many years to come.
