READY TO REMEMBER — Andy Scicluna, 17, an Eagle Scout candidate from Philipstown Troop 437, this year sanded and repainted the more than 530 markers in the Garden of Remembrance installed for Memorial Day each year on the lawn of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Cold Spring. “I thought it might take a couple of weeks, but it ended up taking a couple of months,” Scicluna said. With Scouting suspended because of the COVID-19 shutdown, several troop families installed the memorials, working in shifts. (Photo by Michael Turton)
