First Selectman Beth Heller attended the Court of Honor recognizing Jason Luciani and Felix Liu, who attained the rank of Eagle Scout last month. “Congratulations and thanks to Jason and Felix for completing these projects that enrich the lives of Woodbridge residents,” said First Selectman Heller. “Jason and Felix are a credit to their parents and the community. I am proud of them and the other scouts in our community who have reached the Eagle Scout rank through hard work, cooperation, and volunteerism.”
Liu’s project involved rebuilding and improving the wooden walkway over a 120-foot muddy section of one of the trails in the Alice Newton Street Park. Liu, in collaboration with other Scouts, installed new planks, reworked existing planks, and built a safe and sturdy bridge where the trail crosses a stream. The improvement of this trail and bridge will contribute to the enjoyment and safety of visitors who explore the trails in the popular and beautiful park.
Luciani’s project involved more than 300 hours of research on veterans using Town and cemetery records, input from families, and death records to identify and confirm the histories of veterans of all wars buried in our Town. Luciani, working with other Scouts, also created maps for each of the three Woodbridge cemeteries that detail the final resting place of the Town’s many veterans. The map, permanent grave markers and flag holders guide the accurate placement of the Memorial Day flags placed in the cemeteries each year by Woodbridge Boy Scouts to remember and honor veterans.
