EAGER EAGLES: The Leatherstocking Council branch of the Boy Scouts of America awarded 45 of its scouts with the organization’s highest honor, Eagle Scout, for the 2022 calendar year. Members of the Eagle Scout Class logged an average of 190 hours of community service, either individually or as group leaders, to 45 nonprofit organizations across the BSA’s council. The scouts were honored at the Utica Maennerchor Hall in Marcy, New York on January 8. The Leatherstocking Council’s mission is to “provide character development programs and leadership skills training to families across Delaware, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Otsego, Schoharie, and parts of Lewis and Hamilton counties.” Pictured in the front row, from left to right: Kolgan Deforest, Chittenango; Stephen Copperwheat, New Hartford; Dylan Powers, Ilion; Jacob Eschenbach, New Hartford; Grady Grimm, Clark Mills; Paul Caruso, Utica; Logan Hosler, Clark Mills; Will Shamblen, Cazenovia.

CONDUCTOR FOR A DAY: Dan Buttermann was the winner of the Catskill Symphony Orchestra’s Guest Conductor Contest this year, edging out two worthy opponents—Greater Oneonta Historical Society Executive Director Dr. Marcela Micucci and Oneonta St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church Reverend Chris Welch. Buttermann led the final performance of the CSO’s popular fundraiser, “Le Cabaret,” on March 25 in SUNY Oneonta’s Dewar Arena. This year’s event raised nearly $44,000.00 for the CSO.
