Anderson Buck earns scouting second class rank

Anderson Buck

by Mark Huard

Anderson Buck, of Pittsfield, passed his review and earned his Second Class Rank with Boy Scout Troop #63, in Newport.

Some of the requirements were two hours community service, being able to start a fire by himself, staying physically fit for 30 days and coming up with a plan to earn money in order to buy something he wanted. In his case it was a metal detector. He did a month of chores and odd jobs to successfully earn the money.

In the First Class Rank he will need to pass the BSA swimming test (100 meters without touching the bottom of a pool/pond), do 4 hours of community service and learn different types of knots and how to use them along with many others things. He would also like to organize a fundraiser for the local food pantry.

Anderson Buck lives in Pittsfield with his mom, Sharon Hood, stepdad, Chad Hood, and stepsister, Jayden.
