Spreading his wings


Fourteen-year old Ethan Coffey Masciarelli received his Eagle badge in a court of honor Saturday at the Warwick Fraternal Order of Police Hall attended by more family, friends and members of Troop 1 Richmond. Ethan is the troop’s 77th Eagle Scout; the 50-member troop was founded in 1918. As his service project, Ethan aimed to bring awareness of the service of World War II and Korean War veterans. Connecting with the Rhode Island Honor Flight, he was able to interview veterans of both wars whose stories he shared in a library display and provided to local newspapers. During the ceremony Ethan presented outgoing troop scoutmaster Paul Jarry with the Eagle Mentor pin. Looking on is scoutmaster John Jacques. He then presented pins to his parents. Here, he pins his mother, Janice, as his father, retired Warwick Police Captain Joseph Coffey looks on. Ethan is a student at Hendricken High School. (Warwick Beacon photos)
