Hudson Boy Scout Troop 321 in partnership with the Rotary Club of Hudson recently staged a picnic and open house at the Scout built log cabin historical center on Main street downtown.
Attending were Scout leaders, Scout families, the Mayor and Rotary Club members. The celebration featured a tour of the log cabin, a review of new camping gear, a chance to test the high tech Pinewood Derby track, a taste of delicious Dutch Oven deserts and a proclamation by Mayor Basil.
The proclamation stated that Troop 321 was founded in 1918 and has met weekly in the log cabin on Hudson’s Green since it was constructed in 1931, that thousands of Hudson boys have developed invaluable leadership, personal and life skills and that 115 members have earned Scouting’s highest ranking, Eagle, which is attained by less than 2% of all Scouts.
In the past year, The Scouts have engaged in Earth Day projects and camp outs in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, assisted at the Akron Foodbank, provided the annual Mothers’ Day flower sale, conducted a fund raising raffle at the Rotary Gala, camped in various Ohio State Parks and participated in the National Boy Scout Jamboree.
Members of Troop 321 and the Rotary Club of Hudson will stage an open house at the Scout cabin during Art on the Green, Saturday August 25. Troop parents and Scouts will be available to talk to families with sons in fifth grade through high school ages 11-17 interested in Boy Scouts. Rotary will also have a hot dog/bratwurst and soda stand on the southeast green to raise scholarship funds for Hudson High School students.
