Hazlet, New Jersey – Two volunteers of Boy Scout Troop 32 (River Plaza) recently received special honors atMonmouth Council Boy Scouts of America’s Twin Lights District Volunteer Recognition Dinner at Yesterday’s Restaurant in Hazlet.  Lisa Karew and Anne Henderson Jablonski were presented with the Beacon Award for their enthusiasm and commitment to scouting, specifically acknowledging their tireless dedication to the Troop’s Courts of Honor.

“Part of what makes a Boy Scout Troop continue to thrive is the continuous efforts of its volunteers, taking care of all the necessary details,” says Ron Grippo, Scoutmaster of Troop 32.  “We are lucky to have such dedicated people like Anne and Lisa as part of Troop 32.  Unselfishly, they ensure that our Scouts are properly honored at Courts of Honor, which are held three times a year, as well as our Eagle Scouts, who receive very special and much deserved recognition at our Eagle Courts of Honor.”

 

Founded in 1956, the leadership of BSA Troop 32 believes teaching a boy outdoor skills, self reliance, respect for nature, and respect for others, while promoting community service increases his ability to give back to his family, his country, and himself.  Troop 32 provides an active outdoor program and reinforces the ideals put forth by the Scout Oath and Scout Law.  Troop 32 believes strongly in giving back to the community, which includes conducting food drives for local pantries, participating in civic events, and completing Eagle Projects aimed specifically to assist local organizations.
