Town of North Hempstead Councilman Peter Zuckerman, who represents the Roslyn area, was on hand at Troop 267’s recent Eagle Scout Court of Honor to recognize five new Eagle Scouts. The scouts, whose troop is located in Roslyn Heights, hail from areas of the Town of North Hempstead including East Williston and New Hyde Park.
The Scouts’ projects included doing work for villages, schools and religious organizations. David Fraser, Jr., constructed a media swap for the Community Church of East Williston.
Tim Bhagrattee led a project to restore facilities at the Hindu Temple of Woodside, which was severely damaged during Hurricane Sandy.
Thomas Stroud researched, and led a team to restore the Hempstead Plains and construct an educational kiosk to teach visitors about the history of the area.
Liam Fraser beautified the Village of East Williston by organizing the construction and placement of planters at Village Hall. Patrick Theodoropoulos led a team to revitalize unused and dangerous sections of the Garden City Bird Sanctuary for visitors
The Scouts’ projects involved hundreds of hours of volunteer work and were incredibly successful.
