Boy Scout Troop 219 Lends a Hand

by Rebecca Malowany, Northeast Journal
On Sunday, August 14th, Boy Scout Troop 219 assembled on Brightwaters Boulevard to lend a much needed hand to the Snell Isle beautification project. Twenty-five scouts and their family members washed, restored, sealed, and painted ten animal statues located on Brightwaters Boulevard, Estado Way, Maron Street and Lamara Way.

Scoutmaster Brian O’Neill said, “A significant part of the Scouting program is teaching young men to be engaged in their community and to provide service to others. The Snell Isle beautification project is a great opportunity for our young men to become better citizens and stewards of our community.” Not only did the scouts earn a sense of accomplishment and pride in their work, each volunteer hour they worked will go toward their rank advancement.

The animal statues the scouts restored look absolutely beautiful. The Snell Isle Property Owners Association would like to thank the scouts and their family members who worked so hard on the project: Alex A, Lliam C, Connor C, Cooper D, Wyatt D, Konrad D, Jeffry G, Joshua J, Kavanaugh K, Ilya L, Simon M, Thaddeus O, Jonah S, Aidan S, Hugh S, Jack T, Kai W, Walker W, Marty W, Michael W and Scoutmaster Brian O’Neill. (One-third of the helpers mentioned are Shorecrest students.)

The Boy Scouts of America and Troop 219 are always open to welcoming new members. Troop 219 meets on Wednesdays 7-8:30pm in the gym at St. Raphael’s Catholic School on Snell Isle. For more information on the Boy Scouts or on how to join Troop 219, please visit
