ROCKY POINT, NY – On Saturday, February 12th 2021, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker joined elected officials, boy scouts, troop leaders, and scout families and friends to honor Troop 1776’s newest Eagle Scouts: Dominic Passaro and Joshua Skubliskas. The ceremony was held at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Rocky Point. 

“It is always pleasure to see the bright young leaders that have come from Troop 1776,” said Legislator Anker. “Dominic and Joshua have demonstrated that they have a strong dedication to serving our community and are truly deserving of the honor of being an Eagle Scout. I congratulate them on this magnificent achievement.”

Eagle Scout is the highest rank that a scout can receive. It requires hard work and dedication for a scout to earn 21 merit badges, complete a community service project and undergo a lengthy review process. Dominic Passaro and Joshua Skunbliskas both received the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout after completing their community service projects. Dominic installed and replaced signage that included braille in the buildings of the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind in Smithtown, which will help to rejuvenate and improve the navigability of the Foundation’s facilities. Joshua constructed a paved walkway connecting an existing walkway to two sheds for the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Rocky Point, which will provide a more accessible pathway for staff and volunteers to utilize the church’s storage sheds.
