Boy Scout restoring historical markers for Eagle project - Warwick, NY - 10/19/14

  • 1 photo
  • Jeremy Langdale, 17, a Life Scout in Boy Scout Troop 45, is currently working to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. To achieve Eagle Rank, the small percentage of all scouts who do are required to complete a minimum of 21 merit badges, have leadership roles in and outside of the Troop and participate in community service. And each candidate must complete a major community service project as the last requirement. “Those that know me.” Said Langdale, “know my passion for history, and this summer I had the honor and privilege to volunteer as a Camp Counselor at the Warwick Historical Society’s History Summer Camp program. It was here that I was introduced to Mary Anne Knight and Sharon Knol, Executive Director of the Historical Society. In conversations with them I was able to learn about opportunities for service projects not only for the Historical Society, but the Town of Warwick as well. After some time to think about and choose one of the many ideas provided, I decided to help restore some of the town’s Historical Markers.”
