EAGLE SCOUT WITHOUT A DOUBT

Suffern High School Senior Garrett Nicholson wanted to make a contribution to the memory of America’s men and women in uniform. For his Eagle Scout project, the Troop 2146 member built a paved walkway in the Valley of Heroes at the Village of Sloatsburg Community Fields.

The “Heroes Walk” leads to two monuments honoring World War II veterans from the community.

“Thank you to Garrett for beautifying this area that draws more attention to the monuments dedicated to our heroes,” County Executive Day said. “I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

“He’s a great kid,” said his mother, Karen. “My husband Keith and I  are so proud of him.”
