Boy Scout Troop #9 Citizenship in the Community Badge

BS troop 9Legislator Tom Muratore recently invited Boy Scout Troop #9 of Lake Ronkonkoma to visit his district office. The visit was part of the troop’s requirement to earn their Citizenship in the Community Badge.
Legislator Muratore’s staff explained the history of the Suffolk County Legislature, the functions performed by a legislative office, identified the area encompassing the Fourth District, and discussed current issues of relevance in Suffolk County. To add some Scout history to the meeting, Muratore’s personal Boy Scout uniform from 1959 was displayed to the troop.
The meeting was concluded with a tour of the office, followed by a question and answer period. “It was a pleasure hosting Troop #9 and helping these young men earn their badges. I have such fond memories from my own scouting days,” stated Muratore. “Encouraging young people to be engaged in local government is so important, because the future is in their hands.”
