Greece Town Board honors local Scouts

Matthew Picco, of Boy Scout Troop 278, and Jamison Staub and Jordan Staub, of Troop 240, each received a town of Greece Eagle Scout Recognition Medal at a recent town board meeting.

The medal goes to residents achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. Scouts had to complete a community service project to earn this rank.

Jamison Staub designed and assembled cold frame garden boxes for Homesteads for Hope in Spencerport.

Jordan Staub organized a group of volunteers and secured resources to clean up and beautify a 3/4-mile path at Veteran’s Memorial Park.
