TOMS RIVER – At least once a month, it seems that a local teen is being honored for their diligent work in scouting during a Township Council meeting. The council decided it should be made permanent.
A wall of honor dedicated to scouting has been set aside in the lobby of Town Hall. There are plaques that name recipients of the Eagle Award for Boy Scouts and Gold Award for Girl Scouts. These are the highest recognitions a scout can achieve, and they represent a commitment to public service.
Any scout who earned these recognitions from 2009 until the present can have their name added to the plaques.
To have your child included in this, call 732-341-1000 and follow the prompts for the mayor’s office.
