Today, we lost a dear Brother. Andy Buglione dedicated nearly 90 years to scouting. As a member of O-Shot-Caw Lodge, and an active member of his district. Andy was serving scouts to the very end. The Andy Buglione Fishing Rodeo was held on August 20th and was the last event he was able to attend. He hosted the annual Pompano Beach Memorial Day Parade and Service and served as the Eagle Project Approval Chair for Sawgrass (formerly Lighthouse) District until just a few weeks before his passing.
He will be fondly be remembered by decades of scouts for his Lighthouse District Eagle Buckle presentations and his admonition to every Eagle Scout to “Hug your mother!”
He was also known for his years of teaching Leatherwork at Merit Badge College, day camp and Winter Webelos Weekend, and his service as Range Master for the Scoutmasters Camporee for many years. Andy impacted scouts of all ages all over South Florida and will be missed.
