A Loss of a Community Leader

It is with great sorrow that Greenwood Lake says good bye to one our family members and most influential and profound youth leaders. Walter Andrews, Scout Master for the Greenwood Lake Boy Scouts, Troop 121, lost his long fought battle with mesothelioma this past week. Having been lucky enough to have known Walter (Mr. Andrews to many of us young guys!), I can truly say that I have met no other man who has impacted the kids in our community in a more positive and influential way than he. Mr. Andrews not only made time to raise his own children into outstanding citizens, he devoted his retired life into giving back to Greenwood Lake through the Boy Scouts. Long after his own children left the Scouts, Mr. Andrews continued to serve day in and day out fulfilling one of Greenwood Lake’s most important and difficult challenges – providing GWL youth with positive, proactive and healthy lifestyles. Mr. Andrews’ legacy will live on through the Scouts and through the lives of every young man who has been impacted by his life of service, including myself. I would like to extend my condolences to the Andrews family, and his extended family of Scouts in Greenwood Lake.

One Hundred Years is a Milestone!

I would like to wish Ms. Henrietta Cooke a very happy birthday as she turned 100 years young this weekend. I wish many more years of health and prosperity for you.
