Re-dedication of the Jensen Lodge & Memorial Tree Ceremony

Re-dedication of the Jensen Lodge & Memorial Tree Ceremony

On behalf of Rivorton Area and the Yoho Scout Reserve Management Committee, all are invited to a special event on Sunday, October 15th, 2017 from 3:00-5:00pm.

Re-dedication of Jensen Lodge
The Jensen Lodge has recently had several significant renovations and improvements. With this revitalization of the facility, we believe it is appropriate to recognize the efforts of those who contributed and also, re-dedicate the lodge.

Memorial Trees for Rivorton “Scouters Gone Home”
An initiative first proposed by Linda Boone. With the support of 1st Nashwaaksis, this spring as part of Scoutrees, six special hardwood trees were planted at the Douglas Pond Outdoor Chapel. We are holding a dedication ceremony to the following Rivorton Area “Scouters Gone Home:”

  • Everett Hansen
  • Bill Benner
  • Jean Anne Cameron-Loi
  • Al Peabody
  • Avens Craig
  • Sterling Tucker

These are the first six of many nominated and the intention is to continue dedications in the future.

Assembly will be at the Main Yoho Lodge, proceed to the Jensen Lodge and then to the Chapel.

If you have any questions on the Jensen Lodge re-dedication, please contact Ben Johnson. If you have any questions on the Memorial Tree Ceremony please contact Doug Prosser.

Please circulate this invitation to all Scouting Sections within your Group and any friends of Scouting that you wish.

We hope you can attend for a nice fall afternoon.
