September 11, 2017 – Legislator Leslie Kennedy (R-Nesconset) met with other county officials at the 4th Precinct on Monday for the 9/11 memorial. Two Boy Scouts, Kieran Morse and Bryan Sinclair chose to do their Eagle Scout Project to enhance the Survivor Tree Memorial at the 4th Precinct, and in remembrance of those who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001.
Kieran built a patio made of paver stones around the tree in the back of the 4th precinct, and Bryan Sinclair built a stunning stone benches on the stone patio. This beautiful addition to the 4th precinct, enhances the area where members of the community can come and reflect on the tragedy of 9/11 and watch the Survivor Tree as it grows and remains a tribute to perseverance.
“I am so proud of Kieran and Bryan, they have built a beautiful patio around the tree,” said Legislator Kennedy. “I think it is important that our youth remember the events that happened that day which shape our nation, 16 years later and we are rebuilding much stronger than ever before.”
