Members of Scouts BSA Troop 147 came together to assist Harrison Rosenhaus in his Eagle Scout project on Saturday, May 6 in Fort Tilden.
Rosenhaus planned, raised funds, collected materials and directed the participants during the morning of May 6. He was assisted by eight current members of the troop in repairing and repainting the fence for the Community Garden located in Fort Tilden. Also showing their support were the troop’s four Eagle Scouts, including Harrison’s brothers, Matthew and Phillip, Timothy Foley and Jeremy Finkelstein.
Rosenhaus has been active in scouting for many years, starting as a member of the pack, and now is the troop’s Senior Patrol Leader. The project is the last step before a board review is held to confirm the rank of Eagle Scout for Rosenhaus.
Rosenhaus would like to thank Zachary, Jacob, Daniel, Nick, Ryan, Frankie, Brendan and Justin. Troop 147 is open to boys up to age 18, and no prior experience in Scouting is needed to join. For the younger children, Pack 147 is open to both boys and girls, starting with its Lion program for those in kindergarten through the Webelos program for fourth and fifth graders.
Recently, the pack had its annual Blue & Gold ceremony, where the second-year Webelos crossed over into the troop. Both meet on Thursday nights at the Knights of Columbus (333 Beach 90th Street).
