Troop 116 Newest Eagle Scouts

The leaders of Troop 116 would like to announce the following members who have completed their requirements for Eagle Scout after being reviewed by an Eagle Scout Board of Review. Brendan Michael Finegan worked with the Millstone Township Recreation Commit- tee and planned, organized, and installed two information kiosks for the newMillstone Park. The project assisted of assembling two recycled PVC kiosks and installing them on concrete footers at various locations in the park. The kiosks are used to display the Park rules for fishing and boating. River Shane Meier fundraised, organized, and led the construction and installation of three ADA hexagon shaped picnic tables made from recycled plastic. The project con- sisted of building and installing three picnic tables to be used by the disabled residents of the Heritage Village of Elton Corner and the Heritage Village of Manalapan (senior and low-income housing apartment complexes). Two tables were placed at Elton Cor- ner and one at Manalapan. The table provide a safe place for the residents to visit with friends and family during covid. The tables allow the disabled residents the ability to safely sit close to the tabletop with their wheelchair or walker. JamesThomas Rogero completed his Eagle project, “Masks for a Safe Return to School.” The project was created to help students at Grant Elementary School in Trenton, NJ. to transition back to in person learning after a year and a half of virtual learning. With the return to in person learning, students were required to wear masks every day. The mask project was to encourage wearing masks that were fun and expressive in order to cut down on the spread of Covid 19. The masks are washable and reusable, which also cuts down on disposable mask use and long-term wearing, which is not sanitary. George James Schmidt planned, designed, and managed a project that benefitted the residence of the Heritage Village in Manalapan (a senior and low-income housing complex). The project consisted of building and installing three wooden benches to be utilized by the residents. The benches were constructed of wood with galvanized hardware. All three benches were installed with concrete footing to ensure longevity. The benches provide a safe place for the residents to rest and to spend time together outdoors. Thomas Daniel Sykes designed, engineered, and managed the construction of a bird sanctuary/prayer garden at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. The project includes twelve birdhouses (representing the twelve Apostles) perched upon the horizontal run of six large cedar crosses surrounding a standalone church like birdhouse (representing Je- sus) and a bird bath. In front of the project there are two wooden benches. The entire project is bordered by edge stone in the shape of a heart. The interior of the heart is filled with two-inch sunset stone with a flat stone walkway to the benches. The purpose of this project is to not only provide a sanctuary for the indigenous birds and a visually pleasing area on the church grounds, but to offer visitors a beautiful, peaceful place to pray, meditate, and enjoy nature. An Eagle Scout Court was scheduled for Saturday November 27th at 11:00 am at Saint Joseph Church, 91 Stillhouse Road, Millstone Twp. Congratulations to all the New Eagle Scouts on all your accomplishments.
