CONGERS, N.Y. -- Rockland County Executive Ed Day honored two young men on Tuesday who have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout at a ceremony at the Congers Lake Community Center.
The two, Alex Bruen and Michael J. Rizzo, both of Troop 2005 of Tappan, were welcomed into the ranks of Eagle Scout. Alex Bruen is from West Nyack and Michael J. Rizzo is from Orangetown.
“These fine young men have set an outstanding example by giving back to their community,” Day said. “We thank them for all of their efforts.”
For his service project, Rizzo made improvements to the patio area at the Homes for Heroes in Tappan, including new flower boxes, walkway repairs, planting trees and flowers and building a picnic table.
Bruen built six raised vegetable gardens for West Nyack Elementary School and gave the school supplies and funds to maintain the gardens.
“Their achievements will be enjoyed by the community for years to come,” Day said.
