WHEREAS it is the intention of the Mayor and Council of Cherry Hill Township to focus attention on noteworthy occasions and individuals; and
WHEREAS Gianni DeFrancesco, a member of Troop 170 in Cherry Hill, has attained the rank of Eagle Scout, joining a prestigious group of young men dedicated to serving and improving the community; and
WHEREAS for his Eagle Scout Project, Gianni worked to construct over 50 feet of walking bridges on the Bunker Hill Trails to provide access to low lying areas that gather water; and
WHEREAS the honor of Eagle Scout has been bestowed upon just over 2 million Boy Scouts since 1912, and the lessons and skills this elite group exhibits provide a foundation for these young leaders to continue to lead by example through service throughout their lives; and

NOW, THEREFORE, I, CHUCK CAHN, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Mayor of the Township of Cherry Hill, County of Camden, State of New Jersey, do hereby proclaim Sunday, November 4, 2012 to be
Eagle Scout Day
in the Township of Cherry Hill and do urge all citizens to join with me and Council in recognizing the hard work and commitment required to become an Eagle Scout, and in congratulating Gianni on his tremendous achievement.
