Casco’s Cole Anderson always wanted to make sure you received a good impression of his hometown when you drove through it. A member of Scouts USA Troop 1042 out of Luxemburg, Anderson always wanted to do something with the village’s welcome signs that greet you on the east and west side of Casco as you travel on State Highway 54. His original plan was to refinish the signs before the village recently completed that task. He reformulated his idea and dug out a flowerbed around the signs, planted flowers, and spread mulch to give the area an upgraded look. Anderson says his pride in his hometown and the support he received helped him accomplish his goal.
With all his merit badges finished, Anderson hopes to officially become an Eagle Scout, the highest honor of the Boy Scouts of America, later this month when he finishes his paperwork and goes through his board of review. He is not stopping at scouting’s highest rank as he hopes to complete his Brotherhood, a level within the BSA’s Order of the Arrow, later this year.
