John Margolies is Rockland County’s newest Eagle Scout, a member of the top 4 percent of all Boy Scouts. John Margolies of Troop #78 was feted at an Eagle Court of Honor held at Temple Beth Shalom where his Eagle project was situated. John’s project included restoring the pergola outside of the temple that had become dilapidated over the years. John’s Eagle Scout Project involved the restoration and expansion of the pergola, as well as the patio underneath, and redoing the electric so the area could be used at night. The pergola now stands proud outside the temple and honors the congregant the area was originally dedicated to, Eliot Titlebaum.
