Area boy scouts met at the Corinna Fire Station to help with Boy Scout sign up night for Corinna Troop 65. The troop meets every Wednesday at 6 PM at the Corinna Methodist Church. Boys who are age eleven through seventeen are invited to attend. The church is located at 16 Dexter Road in Corinna.
Boy Scout Troop 404 of Hartland, St. Albans and Palmyra held an Eagle Court of Honor for their newest Eagle Scout, Rusty Wilson. Earning his Eagle rank culminated a Scout career spanning several years, a few states and even a couple countries. Starting Scouts as a Tiger Scout in Maryland in 2001, Rusty progressed through the ranks as he moved with his family to Maryland, New Mexico, South Korea, Colorado, and finally here in Maine. As a Scout, he has hiked the steep mountains of both South Korea and Colorado, completed a 10 mile hike on the Great Wall of China, a week-long canoe trip in the Canadians wilderness, and worked countless community service projects including one in the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea. His Eagle project involved cleaning-up and resetting tombstones in Hartland’s Neven’s Cemetery.
At his Court of Honor, Rusty sited several individuals who had motivated him along the way including his family, coaches such as Scott Preble and Matt O’Connell and, his greatest source of encouragement, his fellow Scouts. He will work toward a Political Science degree at the University of Maine at Orono.
