The case for recruiting



Tim Burgess, of Boy Scout Troop 304 and a freshman at Kennebunk High School, posed Feb. 7 with his Eagle Scout project, a portable display case built for Kennebunkport Village Fire Station. The case will be used at community events to help drive recruitment. Many fire departments in the state have struggled in recent years to land new volunteers. Burgess raised $1,000 to build the case and donated the unused $390 to the fire department. He designed the case with assistance from his father and grandfather. Burgess is expected to become an Eagle Scout by mid-summer, once his application is submitted and reviewed, following successful completion of the project. He is the son of Don and Mary Lou Burgess of Kennebunkport.
