Page 4 THE VILLADOM TIMES IV • February 11, 2009 Mahwah Brendan Mooney is the newest Eagle Scout to join BSA Troop 50, Mahwah. A 2008 graduate of Mahwah High School and Freshman at the University of Delaware, Mooney joins an elite group of Boy Scouts worldwide. His Court of Honor was held at the Ramapo Reformed Church in Mahwah and attended by local government officials, teachers, family, and friends. Eagle Scout is the highest rank that can be earned in the Boy Scouts of America. Mooney joins only two percent of young men who join Scouts and attain the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. This accomplishment requires considerable knowledge, leadership, and many skills learned over years of Scouting. The Eagle Award culminates in a community service project that must be planned, funded, and executed by the Scout.

He organized volunteers and landscaped a large courtyard at the school that was left unfinished four years ago due to lack of funding. Many classes and hallways in the new building face the courtyard which consisted of mulched raised beds with no trees or vegetation. Mooney spent four years looking at the barren courtyard from various classrooms and knew he could do something to make it a more appealing place for Mahwah students and faculty. While the project was huge in scope and cost, Mooney was able to gain approval and funding for the project. He obtained the original site plans and approval from Mahwah High School’s principals and worked with the building and grounds staff to ensure site safety. He raised funds and donations to support the project: One dozen gorgeous trees, some as tall as 16 feet, 50 flowering bushes and perennials, top soil, mulch, supplies, food for volunteers, etc. (continued on page 17) BK BOOKKEEPING & PAYROLL SERVICE, LLC ��������� ������������  QUICKBOOKS PRO SPECIALISTS PRICE CUT - No Fee Spacious Studios �������������������������� ������������������ Servicing All Small Businesses Phone: 973-423-0303 Fax: 973-423-3131 Annmarie Breeman • Nancy Kough  ����������������������������������������������� ��������������������������������������� ������������������������� ������������������������� 201-488-5085 HARDING WINE&SPIRIT Almost everyone who comes into our store has two questions: Feel Better Now! �������������������� ����Muscle Activation Techniques ����������������� ����������������������������������� ���������������������� lowest price allowed in NJ on the 1.5 liter bottle of Barefoot wines.
