Legislator Steven J.Flotteron (R-11th Legislative District) congratulated Senior Girl Scout Rebecca Clock, of Islip Troop 1968, Service Unit #44, on earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest recogition a girl can achieve in Scouting.
Ms. Clock earned her GoldAward by organizing a Senior Prom for Veterans of The American Legion Rusy BohmPost 411 in Islip. She felt they missed out on attending their own proms whenthey were deployed in service and deserved the right of passage most seniors inHigh School got to enjoy, although many years later. They had (50) Veterans andtheir dates enjoy the Prom held at the Post in 2019.
“Since growing up attendingevents with her Grandparents and Parents who are long-time active members ofthe American Legion, she felt it was important these Veterans be recognized,said Legislator Flotteron.
