Local Scouts attain Eagle rank

Jan 04, 2018
Zachary Dorr Dorr built three "Little Free Pantries" for his community.

Attaining the rank of Eagle Scout is a rare and impressive accomplishment but in 2017, two local young men overcame all hurdles to complete the requirements for the highest rank in Scouting. The newly-minted Eagle Scouts from the Midcoast are Zachary Dorr of Rockport and Brian Bradeen of Warren.

Dorr, a member of Troop 200 in Camden, built three "Little Free Pantries" so that those who in need will always be able to find non-perishable food in the community.

Bradeen built a nature trail behind his church in Warren including the creation of steps leading down to the river where congregants can view nature and watch the sunset.

Brian's father, Vernon Bradeen, said of his son. "Working on Brian's Eagle project was so cool to see him work with the younger boys. He's so patient and kind to them. He really is becoming a great young man."

The Eagle Scout Service Project is the opportunity for a Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, or qualified Venturer in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to demonstrate leadership of others while performing a significant and necessary project for the benefit of his community. The project must benefit an organization other than the BSA such as a school or church or local charity, and it cannot be performed for an individual or a business or be commercial in nature.
