Eagles Honored for Bettering Montville

Three Scouts were honored by the Montville Township Board of Education last week.

Being an Eagle Scout is more than wearing a uniform and camping.

As several local Eagle Scouts proved recently, it means making a difference in the community in which you, or others, live to benefit residents. Andrew Kim, Kevin Lindert and Alexander Novis were honored by the Montville Township Board of Education on Oct. 16 for earning their Eagle Scout awards and completing projects around Montville, including renovating school district tennis courts, beautifying the Montville dog park and more.

As his Eagle project, Lindert renovated a room at the high school that was previously used for storage, transforming it into a college resource center. He installed new carpeting and desks, with help from 35 fellow scouts, and also painted the school nurse's office with money generated from donations. The idea behind the college resource center is to allow students to meet with representatives from colleges and universities for informational sessions.  

The Eagles were recently honored at an awards ceremony and Montville Township Board of Education President Dr. Karen Cortellino was in attendance.

"It's always an amazing event to attend because it's very hard to become an Eagle Scout," Cortellino said.

She noted that many of the Scouts begin working toward the honor in kindergarten and 21 merit badges are required to reach the milestone, many of which have multiple components.

"Achieving the rank is really a culmination of a young man's life's work, even though they're still very young, so we should be very proud of all the Eagles in our district and throughout our state, throughout the nation and throughout the world," she said.

I believe that the town of Pine Brook was greatly impacted by an Eagle project last year. A scout had his crew paint all the fire hydrants that were not adopted by the "Adopt a Firehydrant" program. During the day that the scouts painted the hydrants, The Pine Brook Fire Dpt. was with them and located 5 or 6 hydrants that needed repairs. In the end this Eagle project may have helped the Fire Dpt to more quickly respond to a working fire - therefore saving lives. We are proud of all of our scouts that belong to Troop #74 and across the country as well. Thank you for your service to your community.

“Republicans can do it,” said http://www.coachoutletmls.com Jennifer Duffy, a Senate political analyst at the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. “It’s just getting a http://www.hermesbeltsoutletns.net lot harder.” Rob Jesmer, the executive director of the National http://www.coachfactoryoutletion.com Republican Senatorial Committee, said Thursday that Republican candidates were within http://www.coachfactoryonlinemb.com reach of victory in 10 to 12 competitive races, with Mr. Romney’s improvement in the polls http://www.coachoutletonlineef.org lifting candidates in states that were out of play six weeks ago.But time is dwindling. The implications for the next http://www.coachoutletonlineeu.net two years cannot be overstated. If Mr. Obama wins a second term, his hand would be much strengthened http://www.coachfactorystorebg.org by a Democratic-led Senate, even a narrowly divided one, as opposed to unified Republican http://www.coachoutletonlinetpc.net majorities in the House and the Senate.At the moment, Democrats are given little chance of winning the http://www.coachoutlethcs.com net 25 seats they would need to take the House, though they could well gain House seats.If Mr. Romney wins the White House, even a one-seat Democratic http://www.coachoutletb1.com
