EAST BRUNSWICK — Adam Nuzzi, Jared Endler and Christopher Rimanic received Youth Good Citizenship awards and pins in recognition of their scouting accomplishments and attaining the rank of Eagle Scout.
The ceremony for the Boy Scout Troop 223 members was held by the Jersey Blue Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter at the East Brunswick Elks lodge on June 12.
For his Eagle project, Adam led the construction of a shade shelter at the Dog Park on Cranbury Road in East Brunswick.
He served as the project manager to create a new shelter and refurbish existing shelters at the park. The project, which involved 26 volunteers and 63 work hours to complete, was financed by donations and fundraising.
Adam is a student at the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.
Jared’s project included creating a small picnic area connected to a new trail through the Rutgers Gardens on Ryders Lane in East Brunswick.
He led the construction of the picnic table after clearing brush and trees and cutting back undergrowth to establish the trail.
Jared served as the project manager. The project, which involved 26 volunteers and 158 work hours to complete, will provide additional seating and a trail to connect the Rutgers Farm Market with other Rutgers Gardens trails.
Jared is a graduating senior at East Brunswick High School and plans to attend Middlesex County College.
Christopher led the construction of a ¼-mile nature trail that passes by two vernal pools in the wooded area near Beekman Road in East Brunswick.
He served as the project manager for the clearing and upgrade to the trail that was coordinated through the Middlesex County Office of Parks and Recreation. The project, which involved 24 volunteers and 166 work hours to complete, will provide public access to these vernal pools and allow local biologists to study the migration and breeding habits of amphibians that live there.
