Essex County Holiday Lights Spectacular

Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. (seventh from left) welcomed Boy Scout Sean Quinlan (sixth from left) from Lincoln Park, a member of Handicapped Boys Scout Troop 364 in Belleville, to the Holiday Lights Spectacular at Essex County Turtle Back Zoo on Sunday, December 21.

A Boy Scout for over 20 years, Quinlan collected over 100 winter coats as part of his Eagle Scout project and donated them to the collection at the Holiday Lights Spectacular. He worked with the ShopRite supermarkets in Nutley, Belleville and Lincoln Park to serve as collection locations.

Joining the County Executive are (from left) Sean’s sister, Barbara Tudda; Troop Leader/Committee Member Mary Ann Bergamini; Scouts Sergio Ciccolella and John Bergamini; Scout Master Richard Gagnon; Scout Michael Dowd and Gino Pesci.
