Dinner to honor Eagle Scouts and Fred Camillo

Greenwich Scouting is celebrating the newest Eagles Scouts and State Rep. Fred Camillo (151st District) at the 40th annual Eagle Recognition Dinner and “Gathering of Eagles” on Tuesday, June 14, from 6-8:45 p.m., at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich. In addition to recognizing the 2016 Class of Eagle Scouts, the event will also honor The Hon. Fred Camillo with the eighth Malcolm Pray “Friend of Eagles” Award. Past recipients of this award include Malcolm Pray, Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei, State Senator Scott Frantz, Jack Moffly, Lieutenant Commander Charles “Chuck” Standard and Linda McMahon and Terry Betteridge. Local Eagle Scouts of all ages are invited to attend the “Gathering of Eagles” and reunite to celebrate the accomplishments of the newest Greenwich Eagle Scouts.

The 23 newest Greenwich Eagle Scouts are part of nearly 800 Eagle Scouts who have earned this notable rank through Greenwich Scouting over the last 100 years. To date, there are over two-million Eagle Scouts nationwide who make up our current and future leaders. Congratulations to the 2016 Greenwich Eagle Scout Class: Elias Boyer, James Cavataro, George Crist, Seaton Crossman, Dylan DeChiara, Anthony DeGrado, Cristian Fitzgerald, Daniel Gazaille, William Graham, Bennett Hawley, Erik Hoffer, Daniel LeBreton, Robert Lombardi, Matthew Matejak, William McKay, Alexander Nanai, III, Eric Park, Graham Plewniak, Matthew Rogers, Colby Sherwyn, Dwight Stocker, Edward Vitelli and Trevor Webb.

As a State Rep., Fred Camillo represents the 151st district of Greenwich. Fred’s experience as a small business owner, high school teacher, baseball coach and mortgage banker has provided him with the knowledge of where government works for people and where it fails them. His continued active involvement in our community provides him with the insight and experience necessary to legislate in the best interest of the 151st District.

Fred grew up in the Cos Cob section of Greenwich and believes we, in Connecticut, can do a better job in retaining and attracting people to our Town, our area, and our State. The people of the 151st District have been his friends for his whole life and being their voice in Hartford is a special honor. When Fred is not in Hartford, he can be seen in town at the many organizations he is a member of, Greenwich Baseball Foundation, Junior Babe Ruth League, Old Timers Athletic Association, Cos Cob Association and the Greenwich Council, BSA. Fred has served as Honorary Chair of our “Scouting for Food” drive for the past several years, to which we are most grateful. He has led this drive in collecting more than 6 tons of food. His involvement in these community organizations has given Fred an understanding of the many needs of Greenwich as well as real experience in bringing diverse groups together to benefit the whole town.

Adventure, leadership, service and learning, especially in the outdoors, have remained essential to the Greenwich Scouting experience since its inception in 1912. Nearly 1,750 local youth participate in fun programs, run by 350 dedicated volunteers, all of which help prepare local boys and girls for life. With over 18 partnering organizations and Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Venturing and Exploring opportunities in Greenwich, Connecticut, there’s never been a better time to join the Scouting community. If you would like to purchase tickets for this event or are an Eagle Scout interested in re-uniting with local Eagles, visit GreenwichScouting.org or contact Emilia Schiro at 203-869-8424, ext. 109.
