Middle Island, NY - November 10, 2016 - On Sunday, November 6th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker joined Boy Scout Troop 433 at the Middle Island Fire Department for an Eagle Scout Court of Honor Ceremony to recognize Eagle Scouts Dale C. Wissmann and Drew T. Wissmann. Eagle Scout is the highest rank that can be earned by a Boy Scout, and only a small percentage of scouts are granted this rank after earning 21 merit badges and a lengthy review process.

“I would like to commend the Wissmann brothers for their enthusiasm, skills, and commitment to improving their community,” said Legislator Anker. “Their contributions are a testament to their determination and will serve as a model for future generations of Boy Scouts. I wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors.”

In order to become Eagle Scouts, each Boy Scout completed a community service project. Dale sanded, resurfaced, and restored the church floor, altar floor, and altar railings at the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Middle Island. Drew removed, replaced, and painted the main front door, rear door, and the basement door of the same Holy Trinity Lutheran Church.
