Local residents earn Eagle Scout rank
BETHANY — Three boy scouts from Troop 931 in Bethany recently were awarded the rank of Eagle Scout. They are Nicholas Monelli, Kevin Russell and Scott Dellatorre. The ceremony took place Dec. 21 at the Bethany Town Hall.
Monelli’s Eagle Scout Service Project was the creation of the American Flag Retirement Fire Ring at Veteran’s Memorial Park for VFW Post 2448.
Russell’s Eagle Service Project involved identifying and then documenting the location of all U.S. Veteran graves in the five Bethany cemeteries using GPS coordinates. Requested by VFW Post 2448, the project created a format using modern technology for inventory these locations.
Dellatorre’s Eagle Scout Service Project was the replacement of the bulletin board in front of the old fire house on Amity Road.
