Greene Boy Scouts learn about local government

GREENE – Members of Boy Scout Troop #55 had a chance to see their local elected officials at work earlier this month. In order to earn a badge for “Citizenship in the Community,” the boys attended a meeting of Greene’s Town Council.

Boy Scout Christian Lopez was the first to pose a question to the board. Lopez, who indicated an interest in attending future Town meetings, asked when the next would be taking place.
