Town of Babylon Councilman Tom Donnelly recently honored Jake Altman of West Babylon for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout – the highest honor in scouting. A Court of Honor ceremony was held at the American Legion Hall in Babylon to recognize Jake’s accomplishments. For his Eagle Project, Jake planted beach grass at the Babylon Village pool to help create a barrier to the bay and prevent erosion around the pool. Jake’s project took a total of 165 man-hours, including planning, fundraising and completion. Councilman Donnelly congratulated Jake and presented him with an official Town Proclamation.
