Odell Celebrates Putnam Valley Eagle Scout’s Achievement

PUTNAM VALLEY, N.Y. (May 4, 2014) – Putnam Valley’s Daniel Anthony Feuerstake of Boy Scout Troop 353 was recognized for earning his Eagle Scout status on Saturday, May 3. Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell and Sheriff Don Smith attended the ceremony and congratulated the scout.

“Becoming an Eagle Scout is not an easy task. It takes dedication and perseverance,” said Odell. “I congratulate Daniel for taking on the challenge and succeeding. The skills he learned from doing the project stay with him as he continues through life.

For his Eagle Scout project, Feuerstake restored the historical Adams Corners Cemetery.

“Daniel’s project benefits the historical component of the community and is certain to be appreciated by townspeople and tourists alike,” said Odell.

Achieving an Eagle SCout ranking is the highest honor in the Boy Scouts of America. Only five percent of the young men involved in scouting ever achieve the rank of Eagle.
