   Members of Boy Scout Troop 510 and their leaders participated in the huge disaster preparedness drill October 15, 2005 at Evangola State Park. A simulated anthrax outbreak was the focus of the drill where 24 agencies participated in the screening of victims for radiation exposure, and checking on the medical condition of 500 scouts/leaders from WNY.
   The staging of the full-scale disaster drill with Emergency Preparedness Responders included the following participants: the Department of Homeland Security, Erie County Department of Emergency Services, Erie County HazMat Organization, The Specialized Medical Assistance Response or SMART Team, local hospitals, first responders and the Greater Buffalo Chapter of the American Red Cross.
    All agencies appreciated the scout participation and the scouts themselves enjoyed the experience. As a thank you to the scouts, the various agencies packaged up give-aways that included flashlights, lip balm, fridge magnets, and rubber cell phones (see photo). A display of many exhibits followed the drill.

   For his Boy Scout Eagle Scout requirement, Ron Warner Jr. organized a food drive at two Grand Island schools. During the week of November 15-19, 2004, students and faculty at Huth Road Elementary School and Kaegebein Elementary School contributed a total of 3729 pounds of food and 704 winter coats to benefit the needy. The employees at the Food Bank of Western New York who picked up the food and coats from the Warner house were amazed; they had never picked up so much from one place. They stated that the schools had done better than most big corporations do when they do holiday food drives amongst their employees. In each school the class that generated the most weight in food was to receive a pizza party. The Brick Oven Pizzeria and Pizza Hut have agreed to help with supplying pizza. The winning classes were Ms. Dilibertoís class at Huth Road who collected 194 pounds of food and 22 coats, and Mrs. Leifer-Lavitzís class at Kaegebein who collected 285 pounds of food and 18 coats.
   The Food Bank of Western New York distributes food and grocery items to over 500 agencies in the counties of Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie and Niagara. According to Food Bank Director Clem Eckert, the 3729 pounds the schools raised can feed 355 families for a day.
   Ron Warner Jr. is a member of Boy Scouts of America Troop 510, which meets at Trinity Church. As a candidate for his Eagle Scout rank, Ron was required to do a project to help his community, and wanted to help the 91,000 hungry Western New Yorkers who turn to soup kitchens, food pantries, and other emergency food providers.

   What group will benefit from the project? Answer: Over 500 agencies in the counties of Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie and Niagara that the Food Bank of Western New York distributes food and grocery items to.

James Frantz III Receives Eagle Scout Recognition

   James Frantz III, 18, has fulfilled all the requirements for Eagle Scout and will be recognized at the Eagle Ceremony at 4 p.m. June 1, 2002 in Trinity United Methodist Church. A senior at Grand Island High School and a member of Boy Scout Troop 510, he is the son of James and Kathleen Frantz of Continental Lane.
   As an Eagle project, James chose a goal of creating Nature Identification Signs along a Nature Path at Riverside Salem Church Park on West River Road, Grand Island NY. Activities involved coordinating volunteers and a nature specialist to identify plant and animal wildlife along an existing nature path. The next step was to conduct research and the manufacture of signs for each species, including species, descriptions and pictures. The final step was to install the signs along path. The project was conducted in the fall of 2001.
