Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer, Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez and the rest of the Town Board have congratulated several new Eagle Scouts across the Town of Babylon over the past few weeks. Each scout is honored at a Court of Honor ceremony, where he details the project he completed as well as his accomplishments over his scouting career that result in the illustrious rank of Eagle Scout. At each ceremony, scouts are presented with official Town of Babylon Proclamations for their achievement. Here are some of the newest Eagle Scouts within the Town of Babylon:
