Three Young Men Achieve Eagle Scout Rank at Age 15

Eagle Scout Ceremony
Committeewoman Pat Snell congratulated Troop 246's Eagle Scouts Zachary Jenkins, Patrick Fitzgerald and Raphael Kon along with their Scoutmaster William Jenkins.

Committeewoman Pat Snell attended a special Eagle Scout Ceremony on Sunday, February 24th at the Red Bank Elks Lodge. 

Troop 246 celebrated the accomplishments of Patrick Fitzgerald, Zachary Jenkins, and Raphael Kon for the service projects they did to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout at the young age of 15 (it's typically 18).

All three scouts built something to benefit our community. Patrick constructed several picnic tables and benches, including handicapped access, for the Lincroft Little League. Zachary designed and built a movable chicken coop for Oasis Farms, and Raphael created and built a donation pantry for The Back Pack Crew. 


We congratulate these young men and look forward to seeing what their futures hold!
