KENILWORTH, NJ – Kenilworth Boy Scout David Villafranca of Troop 83 plans to reach the Eagle Rank by giving back to Borough Hall.

Villafranca, 15, wants to replace the carpeting in the municipal building’s Court Room and Chambers Room which he estimates will cost $3,500.

“In the past, my Troop and I have been in the Court Room numerous times receiving certificates/recognition due to our countless community services, beautification for our town and just recently, my Youth Police Academy Graduation,” Villafranca said. “When receiving these certificates, I have noticed that the carpeting was dirty, worn-out and wasn’t appealing. The same is for the Chambers Room. To show my appreciation and great honor, I want to replace the carpeting as my Eagle Scout Project.”

Villafranca plans to start and finish his project on Oct. 27 and Oct. 28., but needs help with fundraising.

“This would cover the cost of the carpeting, tools and other supplies that will be used for this project,” Villafranca said. “Any leftover funds will be donated to the beneficiary of my project Kenilworth Borough.”
