Bay Ridge

Cheers to Basil Capetanakis and John Demenagas of Troop 715, who have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest accomplishment in Boy Scouts.

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R–Bay Ridge) was on hand to offer her good wishes when the boys received their wings on Jan 9.

“Both these young men have exhibited a concern and compassion for those in their community and throughout the world, earning them the rare and prestigious advancement rank of Eagle Scout,” she said. “I am very proud of Basil and John, and I look forward to seeing more great things from them in the future.”

Basil helped out the CHiPS soup kitchen and homeless shelter, collecting urgent supplies as part of his community project.

In order to obtain the coveted rank — that lasts for life by the way — a scout has to earn at least 21 merit badges, and plan and implement a community project that demonstrates leadership and commitment.

Standing Os are for life, too, so here’s a couple of well-deserved shout-outs to the aspiring ‘“Eagles.”

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, district Office [7408 Fifth Ave. at 74th Street in Bay Ridge, (718) 987–0197].
