This past year, A.H. Harris was pleased to be a part of the Camp William Hinds Dining Hall Project. Camp Hinds, located in Raymond, Maine, is owned and maintained by the Pine Tree Council, Boy Scouts of America. Camp Hinds is a year round camp dedicated to helping promote the aims and methods of Boy Scouting to their fullest abilities. Account Manager and Camp Hinds attendee, Alan Gould, was approached by dedicated customer, Larry Grondin of RJ Grondin & Sons, to donate site work. Alan reached out to Northern New England regional Vice President Michael Griffin, and to Kim Corwin our President and CEO, who both agreed this project was a great endeavor for our company to invest in. With much support, Alan was able to inform Larry Grondin and Eric Tarbox, Scout Executive/CEO, that Harris was fully committed to the project. With much pleasure, A.H. Harris was happy to donate grade stakes and silt fence along with Harris-Ply out of our Plainville store for the dining hall foundation. The U.S. Military was gracious enough to provide transportation for the project equipment. According to Alan Gould,
“I was delighted to jump on board as I had attend Camp Hinds when my son was in scouts. I remembered how it was in need of major help back when we attended and knew it would take a major capital campaign to get the facility up to a current standard… Larry Grondin and Eric Tarbox, Scout Executive/CEO were both extremely grateful for our support.”
The Expected Completion for the Project is August of 2016.
