CASCO — Carol Hancock has joined the board of directors at Camp Sunshine, a one-of-a-kind national retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. She was formerly a board member of the camp back in the 1990s, and since then has continued to actively support the program.

A native of Casco, she is a retired educator and graduate of the University of Southern Maine.

“Carol Hancock and her entire family, as well as their family businesses — Hancock Lumber and Hancock Land Company — have been longtime supporters of Camp Sunshine, and we couldn’t be happier or more grateful to regain her help at the board level in guiding us through the coming years,” said Matt Hoidal, executive director, Camp Sunshine.

“Carol’s vast and diverse board experience, as well as her dedication to the Camp Sunshine mission, make her an extremely valuable asset and we’re very fortunate to have her.”
