Don Bosco Prep students Kensho Arcari ’19 and Christopher O’Malley ’19 recently earned their Eagle Scout award.
For Arcari’s Eagle Scout project, he designed and built a garden gazebo surrounded by flowers for the Church of the Ascension in New Milford, NJ. It took several days and many volunteers to build the beautiful gathering space to meet after mass.
For O’Malley’s Eagle Scout project, he worked with Merlin's Kids, an organization that trains and places service dogs for veterans with PTSD, children with special needs, and firemen. They also train dogs for disease detection. O’Malley in particular worked to help a veteran in need of a service dog. He raised funds by arranging a pancake breakfast, organizing a collection of much needed supplies from local pet stores, and helping clean and clear several rooms at a new location for the dogs and trainers.
Both boys are from Ascension Troop 291 in New Milford. Congratulations gentlemen!
