Congratulations of the highest order are given to Michael Brown of Boy Scout Troop 371

Proclamation

Congratulations of the highest order are given to Michael Brown of Boy Scout Troop 371 in Mahopac for successfully completing the requirements necessary to earn the Boy Scouts of America’s highest rank, that of an Eagle Scout.

 Achieving this rank is truly an accomplishment, Michael, and one you will undoubtedly consider a significant milestone in your life. Only five percent of young men involved in Scouting ever achieve the rank of Eagle. You soar among a select few.

Your service project, building an observation area complete with benches near a pond on the grounds of Muscoot Farm in Somers is a testament to your thoughtfulness and upbringing and something that will be enjoyed for years to come by visitors to the historic farm.

Planning the project, getting the necessary approvals, seeking volunteers and donations, learning to delegate, and overseeing those involved in taking your plan and making it a reality, were key lessons learned and ones that will serve you well throughout your life.

Through Scouting, Michael, you have learned much about nature, citizenship, personal fitness and management and emergency preparedness. Every merit badge you earned has presented you with insights to the worlds within these categories but most importantly, Scouting has taught you about yourself. There is no merit badge or particular award for that. However, knowing oneself, recognizing your strengths and using them wisely will also serve you well throughout your life.

You have done exceedingly well, Michael. I am honored to sign my hand to this Proclamation and to offer you the congratulations of the entire County of Putnam.

Congratulations and kudos are due Kevin T. Neary

Proclamation

Congratulations and kudos are due Kevin T. Neary, a man who for almost two decades has been mentor, advisor, coach, counselor, and teacher to both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts in the Mahopac area.

 It is fitting that Kevin be honored for his years in Scouting where he has shared his unique expertise and provided help and hope to countless boys and young men involved in Scouting.

As a youngster, Kevin was a Cub Scout in the second, third and fourth grades at the Immaculate Conception Monastery in Jamaica, Queens. When his family moved to Mahopac, Kevin continued on for a short while as a Boy Scout and while he left Scouting, he never lost his love for the Boy Scout experience. Years later, in 1994, Kevin returned to Scouting as Mahopac Cub Scout Pack 89 Assistant Scoutmaster when his son, Brian, entered the ranks.

Since 1994, numerous boys and young men have been instructed and inspired by Kevin as he served as Asst. Cubmaster and Committee member for Mahopac Cub Scout Pack 89 and then as Asst. Scoutmaster and, later, Scoutmaster of Mahopac Boy Scout Troop 1. Kevin has mentored, advised, coached, counseled, taught and encouraged 20 Boy Scouts including his son, Brian, as they persevered further and successfully reached the rank of Eagle Scout, something only five percent of those who enter Scouting ever achieve.

On behalf of the citizens of Putnam County I sign my hand with great pleasure to this Proclamation honoring and thanking Asst. Scoutmaster Kevin T. Neary for his years of dedicated service to Mahopac Boy Scout Troop 1.
