Jess DiPasquale and Eagle Scout Connor Mulcahey have been selected as Weston’s honorees for the 2013 Commitment to Community Distinguished Citizen Awards sponsored by the Connecticut Yankee Council, Boy Scouts of America. They will be recognized during an awards dinner at Cobb’s Mill Inn on Sunday, April 28, along with other Scouts and Scout leaders from Westport.
The honorees were selected by a committee of volunteers as “Good Scouts” for their outstanding community service as evidenced by the interest and leadership given to many worthwhile organizations as well as the respect and esteem in which they are held by their colleagues.
Mr. DiPasquale is president/CEO of Alliance Group Services Inc., a nationwide telecommunications company. He serves on the Weston Police Commission and is also active in Kiwanis, Boosters Club, Weston Historical Society (Founder’s Circle), the Republican Town Committee, and Legatus (president of the Fairfield chapter). His sons were involved in Cub Scouts.
Connor, son of Carolyn Armbrust, has logged many hours of community service on his way to Eagle Scout. He has also served as Troop 788 senior patrol leader.
Past honorees have included former Congressman Christopher Shays, former Weston First Selectman Woody Bliss, Terex CEO Ron DeFao, and Robert Rose, founder of the event.
