| 22 Feb 2012 | 02:05

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped me with my Eagle Project (landscaping project at Sacred Heart Church in Monroe). First, I would like to thank my parents for always being there for me and supporting me in all that I do. I would like to thank my grandparents, godparents, aunt and uncles for their support. I would also like to thank my entire troop 440, but especially, Mr. Mike Phipps, Mr. Jack Rallo, Mr. Jeff Manson and Ben Slutsky for their commitment. Without the generous donations and support from the following businesses and organizations, this Eagle Project would not have been possible for me to complete: The Christian Living Store of Central Valley, ShopRite of Monroe, The Castle Fun Center in Chester, the Monroe Diner, Mr. Cone of Monroe, Stop and Shop in Monroe and United Martial Arts Center in Warwick. Also: Wally’s Ice Cream Parlor of Monroe, Colonial Lanes in Chester, Lowes in Chester, Monroe Jeweler, Wal-Mart in Harriman, The Party Shack in Monroe and The Home Depot in Harriman. Also: Vincenzo’s Barber Shop in Monroe, Twin Lakes Estates in Monroe, Monroe Printing and Photography, Hudson Valley Renegades, Convenience Café in Monroe, By George II in Monroe, Monroe Woodbury Little League, Lakeside Fire District in Monroe and Shemin Nursery in Mahwah, N.J. A special thank you goes out to the following for their extreme generosity: • Anthony Cuomo at Laura Ann Farms in Monroe. • Planet Pizza in Monroe. • Big Mike’s Pizza in Monroe. • James Waldron at Monroe Beer & Soda. • Anthony Cardone at Fran’s Hallmark in Monroe. • Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan of Smith, Seaman, and Quackenbush Funeral Home in Monroe. • And finally, thank you to Father Tom Byrnes and Sacred Heart Parish for allowing me to do this project for my parish.
