Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez recently joined with New York State Assemblyman Robert Sweeney to commend a group of Cub Scouts from Copiague’s Pack 154 for obtaining their Arrow of Light awards. The Arrow of Light award is the highest honor available to Cub Scouts and represents the first step in the transition to becoming a Boy Scout. In order to obtain an Arrow of Light award, a Cub Scout must earn a variety of activity badges, meet several skill requirements, observe a Boy Scout meeting and activity, and learn the Scout Promise and Scout Law.
