Committee seeks to preserve Boy Scout cabin

A committee seeking to repair and preserve the Boy Scout cabin on the Botetourt Elementary School campus is seeking an agreement with the Gloucester County School Board that will allow it to proceed with the preservation project. 

Boy Scout Cabin Preservation Committee vice chairman Frank Evans and member Daniel Worthington presented a draft memorandum of understanding to the board during its Oct. 10 meeting.

The memorandum of understanding would be between the committee, which the memorandum said was organized by former members of Boy Scout Troop 111, The Fairfield Foundation, and the board. 

The Fairfield Foundation would provide guidance and resources for the preservation project and receive and disburse funds for it, according to the memorandum.

The committee and the Fairfield Foundation seek approval from the board for the preservation project and the continued use of the cabin and site for scout activities for a term of 99 years at a fee of $1 per year.
