It is with great sadness that I must announce that our friend Mo Roy passed away on Sunday, July 13 from his cancer illness.
Mo served Scouting in this council area as a professional for over 40 years. After his retirement, he continued his involvement in Scouting as chairman of Camp Workcoeman’s support group, the Citizens of Shawtown.
His greatest strength was his professional and friendly approach to his job. Mo always supported the efforts of Scouting volunteers. You could always count on Mo!
When he retired, Scouting lost an old-time professional. With his passing, humanity has lost a true gentleman.
I will miss my friend as will those who knew him in the Scouting family.
Camp Workcoeman’s ninetieth anniversary reunion will be held on Saturday, July 26, 2014 starting at 3:00pm. Reconnect with generations of Scouters to celebrate ninety years of good camping on West Hill Pond. Take some time to tour camp and note the many changes that have occurred over the years before joining us for a chicken cookout. Whether you were a camper, staffer, or volunteer you will enjoy this opportunity to reunite with your past.
Beaver Day is scheduled for Saturday, June 7, 2014. This very important day will bring Scouters together from all over the council to tackle the huge task of preparing Camp Workcoeman for the summer camp season.
All kinds of projects are scheduled and we need your help! Skills and equipment are needed for tasks such as carpentry, painting, electrical, plumbing as well as just plain help!
We will gather for coffee and… at 8:30 am to review projects. Then we’ll begin the work projects at 9:00 am. Lunch will be provided.
Please confirm that you will attend with either Ranger Frank at [email protected] or Lou at [email protected].
Be sure to tell if you have a special skill. This will enable correct planning for projects and materials.

Established in 1924, it is one of the oldest continuously operated Scout camps in the country. For 99 years, thousands of Scouts and Scouters have had unforgettable Scouting experiences at Camp Workcoeman. This fine tradition of Scouting continues today.
