Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board Members Mike Barry, Mike Bloomer, Bill Murphy, and Diana Christodaro for an official Eagle Scout Award Presentation Ceremony during the Town Board Meeting on Thursday, April 15, 2021. The Town of Greece Eagle Scout Recognition Medal is presented to all Boy Scouts who have recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in their local troop.
“It is an honor for me to present proclamations and medals to the hard working and determined young men who have shown that commitment and perseverance lead to success” said Supervisor Bill Reilich. “At Thursday evening’s Town Board meeting, I had the privilege of presenting a proclamation and medal to Nick Novellin who has recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in Troop Number 48. For his Eagle Scout Project, Nick decided to pursue a project that would benefit the Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong. Nick spent several hours coordinating, organizing, and helping to produce over 500 cloth masks that were needed by Golisano Children’s Hospital. During the height of the pandemic, Nick organized volunteers to sew the masks, collected them, packaged them, and presented them to the hospital. Helping the hospital was near to Nick’s heart, and he was thankful to have the opportunity to help in a very significant way. Thank you for choosing a project that helped benefit and protect our essential healthcare workers!”
