ROXBURY, NJ – A Roxbury Boy Scout who recently became an Eagle Scout was honored this week by the Roxbury Mayor and Council.

As his Eagle project, Dylan Coons built bins to store dirt and mulch at the Mount Arlington Community Garden and a sign for the entrance.

“We have amazing Scouts in our community,” said Roxbury Mayor Bob DeFillippo before presenting Coons with a certificate of recognition from the municipality.
