Eagle scout honored by Rep. Jolly: Mark Gauzens of Boy Scout Troop 434 earned the Eagle Scout rank and was commended by U.S. Rep. David Jolly on Aug. 22. Gauzens earned the rank after completing more than 325 requirements, serving in leadership roles, doing community service projects, camping, hiking and helping fellow scouts achieve troop ranks. His Eagle service project was building a sustainable pathway to a prayer garden at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Dunedin. The pathway provides easy access to a quiet area of respite and repose. Gauzens is the son of Alan and Joanne Gauzens of Dunedin.

Army veteran awarded with tablet: Dunedin Lodge 192 F. & A.M., in partnership with the Healing Heroes Network, presented a tablet to retired Staff Sgt. Giovanna Moreno. Moreno, who served two tours in Iraq and 16 years in the U.S. Army, received the tablet from lodge officers in a ceremony with her family. The tablet was a gift to provide support in dealing with disorganization, forgetfulness and other symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.
