Babylon Town Councilman Tom Donnelly recently congratulated Thomas J. Barcia of Boy Scout Troop 104 for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest honor awarded by the organization. A Court of Honor ceremony was held at St. Patrick’s Church in Bay Shore with other local officials in attendance, including Suffolk County Legislator Kevin McCaffrey. Thomas’ Eagle Project was to refurbish a statue and flowerbeds at the church, which was originally installed by his uncle in 1995. The project took over 118 hours of planning, fundraising and work to complete.
