I am proud of Eagle Scout candidate Tyler Benjamin, his family, his scout troop, and our American Legion, Post 133. Great ceremony ceremonies were held last night - first to formally kick of completion of the flag retirement boxes (located at Coral Reef and Ludovici Parks) and then a flag burning ceremony. I was pleased to participate, both through official recognition on behalf of the Village Council of Palmetto Bay and then by personal participation in the retirement of the flag that had flown at my home. A representative of our Village police was present as were members of American Legion, Post 133. This flag retirement ceremony was another great family event, another thread woven, here in Palmetto Bay.
I am a longtime member of scouting, having been a scout since elementary school, participating in scout leadership and having my daughters excel in scouting. I love Palmetto Bay and I love Scouting - strengthening our community.
