Where We Live: Town of Tonawanda

Town of Tonawanda

Three more members of Boy Scout Troop 286 have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.

Robert Mol, 16; Austin Oetinger, 15; and Ryan Pietrzyk, 16, were honored Saturday in a Court of Honor ceremony in Brighton Community Church, which has sponsored the troop for almost six decades and yielded 50 Eagle Scouts.

Erie County Sheriff Timothy Howard was the guest speaker.

Mol is the son of Jim and Lisa Mol. A sophomore at Kenmore East High School, his Eagle Scout project involved painting a hallway and schoolroom, and building cupboard doors, at Brighton Community Church.

Oetinger, a sophomore at Williamsville North High School, is the son of Mark and Kathy Oetinger. For his project, he painted three rooms behind the altar at the same church.

Pietrzyk, the son of Steve and Jodi Pietrzyk, is a junior at St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute. His project was done at Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve, in Cheektowaga, where he built a gated enclosure designed to show the differences in vegetation growth in an area that deer can’t reach.
