East Windsor Township, NJ – In a show of recognition and commendation, Mayor Janice S. Mironov issued a Mayoral Proclamation to honor the members of Boy Scout Troop 5700 for their exceptional lifesaving actions during a sailboat trip in the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland. The scouts, Cash Colleton, Jack Conner, Adam Lewandowski, and Connor Suk, along with their scoutmaster Bruce Kramer, were lauded for their proactive and skillful response in coming to the aid of an individual in distress.
According to the Mayoral Proclamation, the scouts demonstrated remarkable composure and vigilance upon receiving a distress message from the coast guard via radio. Sensing the urgency of the situation, they strategically positioned themselves on different parts of the sailboat’s deck, ensuring comprehensive monitoring of the immediate surroundings. Their astute observations led them to discover a disabled jet ski and a discarded backpack floating in the water. Swiftly relaying the coordinates and registration number of the jet ski to the coast guard, the scouts played a pivotal role in facilitating the rescue of the distressed boater, who was located 200 yards away.

On behalf of the Township Council and the entire community, Mayor Mironov extended her heartfelt commendations to these young individuals for their outstanding display of courage and resourcefulness.
