Earning the highest honor in scouting — their Eagle

Peter Sandri, 15, and Jeffrey Penkoff, 18, were recently awarded the highest honor in scouting – their Eagle.  Pictured with them is Troop 65 Scoutmaster Jim Folchick.  For his Eagle project, Jeffrey built a living science garden for Middlebrook Elementary School so that students could plan, grow and eat what they grow.  He also grew flowers for a trellis outside in the courtyard of the school.  Peter did a personal care item drive and built  outdoor benches for the clients and staff to use at St. Vincent DePaul Thrift Store and Food Bank in Derby.
