At the next District Meeting on Sept. 2 we will have a discussion and district vote to determine our future plans for Medicine River Scout Center. Any individual who wishes to express an opinion to the committee should attend this meeting and be heard. This has been a project now three years-plus in the making and has many pros and cons. As a district, we will need to determine whether it is more an asset or a liability to our local program and whether we have the appetite and resources to complete the rehabilitation and future maintenance of this large property, or not. I will be guaging the council’s interest this weekend at the council board meeting. As the new District Chair, I will no longer be able to function as the chairman of the Medicine River Scout Center Development Committee. We will therefore need someone to step forward to occupy that role. I am happy to advise and participate in the effort to rehab and maintain the site, if the district committee decides to support it. Please consider carefully the costs and benefits of this project. Also, please inform anyone who may be interested in leadership in this project to contact me.
Sincerely, Peter Jennings District Chairman Lewis and Clark District cell 868-3574
