    Eagle Scout candidate organizes cabin project

    Three rustic cabins at Camp Kiwanee recently got a small upgrade through the help of area Boy Scouts. Nathan Letourneau, a member of Hanover Boy Scouts Troop 38, selected as his Eagle Scout project replacing the shutters on the cabins. Letourneau, who turned 18 on Dec. 20, raised $900 to purchase the parts, and, assisted by fellow Scouts and parents from the troop, carried out the work on Dec. 17-19, according to Jim Flanagan, the town’s Camp Kiwanee caretaker. Flanagan said the project was “definitely needed,” noting that the old shutters were in worn condition. He said the new shutters “look nice and are highly functional. I was very pleased with the way it came out.” Another Troop 38 member replaced shutters at three of the other cabins for his Eagle Scout project about five years ago. Flanagan said a long-term goal of the town has been to have new shutters installed at all of the camp’s 40 cabins, “but we don’t have the resources to do that.” The cabins are part of a campground that also includes six tent sites. The town-owned property off Route 58 also includes Cranberry Cove, a public beach on Maquan Pond, and a function hall, Needles Lodge.
