KENILWORTH, NJ - Joseph Gasper is 17 years old and a Boy Scout in Troop 83 of Kenilworth. He has been a scout since the first grade and hopes to be involved the rest of his life. His current rank is a Life Scout which is right below an Eagle Scout. To earn the rank of Eagle Scout, Joseph must complete a project. An Eagle Scout Project involves the scout preparing and making a project that benefits his community while demonstrating his leadership skills.
For his project Joseph has built a large shed at DiMario Park for the Recreation Center. The shed will be used for the park’s equipment and for extra storage space. After the completion of this project and some other requirements, Joseph will receive the rank of Eagle Scout which is the highest rank within the Boy Scouts.
The unveiling of the shed will be held at DiMario Park on Michigan Avneue at 7pm tomorrow.
