Assemblyman Chad Lupinacci (R,C,WF,I-Huntington Station) recently attended the Eagle Court of Honor for
Benjamin Noah Rosen-Packard,
All three young men are members of Troop 78 in Huntington.
“Richard, Benjamin and John all demonstrated an immense sense of hard work and dedication during their time in the Boy Scouts program, and receiving their Eagle Scout badges is a testament to their perseverance,” said Lupinacci. “The Court of Honor was also an opportunity for all three to be honored for their good deeds and service to the community. However, it was also a way for each of the young men to say thank you to their scoutmaster, fellow scouts, family and friends for the time and support they provided over the years. I was honored to celebrate with Richard, Benjamin, John, their troop mates, friends and family on this important occasion, and I applaud their accomplishments.
