lh_day_1On Saturday June 16th Lodge Chief Ian B and Lodge Adviser Select Mike Gaylord made THE announcement we have all been waiting for; all the permits are in hand and sufficient monies have been raised to begin construction!

Last week that happened.

The construction on the new longhouse at Camp Pigott has begun!

The process started with digging the main utility trench that will carry water, electricity and data to the longhouse building site. Construction will last most of the summer and fall and since the location is away from camp it will not affect scouts attending Camp Pigott this summer. Construction is expected to be finished around the first of the year.

Congratulations to the Lodge and all who helped make this dream... into a reality.

Even though the permits are in and the construction has begun we are still raising funds for the project to cover incidentals, cost overruns and proper finishes for the new building. Once the building is finished, the Supreme Chief of the Fire has authorized the creation of an endowment to fund the maintenance and care of the new building. Any monies leftover after construction will go into this fund.
