FOR RELEASE: September 25, 2023
Mayor Janice S. Mironov issued a Mayoral Proclamation recognizing and commending Boy Scout Troop 5700 members Cash Colleton, Jack Conner, Adam Lewandowski and Connor Suk and scoutmaster Bruce Kramer for their pro-active and skillful lifesaving actions when they helped to save an individual in distress during a week-long sailboat trip this summer in the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland.
The Mayoral Proclamation, notes that when the Scouts received a message over the radio from the coast guard advising all boats in the water that there was an individual in distress, they “reacted in a calm and controlled manner by stationing themselves on different parts of the sailboat’s deck, ensuring the immediate area was being monitored from all directions.” The Proclamation continues, “Troop 5700 Boy Scouts saw something ‘shining in the distance’ and discovered a disabled jet ski and discarded backpack bobbing up and down on the water, and quickly relayed the jet ski’s coordinates and registration number to the coast guard and as a result of these actions, the coast guard and Maryland State Police were able to locate and rescue the distressed boater 200 yards away.”
Mayor Mironov stated, “The Township is proud of Boy Scout Troop 5700 members Cash Colleton, Jack Conner, Adam Lewandowski and Connor Suk as well as scoutmaster Bruce Kramer for their pro-active and skillful actions which resulted in the rescue of this person. Emergency Preparedness is an essential lesson every Scout learns and the fast-acting Scouts reacted quickly and calmly in a real-life emergency situation. On behalf of the Township Council and the entire community, we want to commend these Scouts for their outstanding positive actions.”
