Greg Kitson presents a check to Girl Scout chairperson Darlene Juengel to aid in the process of making long overdue repairs to the Girl Scout cabin in Hanna-Nuttman Park. Pictured in front, with the renovation plans, are Courtney Juengel and Bridget Juengel.
Another victim of the rugged winter of 2013-14, as well as age, sits somewhat lonely and forlorn in Hanna-Nuttman Park. Across the road from the Girl Scout cabin, its “cousin,” the Boy Scout cabin, almost sparkles in contrast.
The Boy Scout cabin, built in the early 1930s, underwent a major overhaul in 2007 and today that work belies its age. Across the park road, however, the much younger Girl Scout cabin is in such disrepair that there are growing concerns it might not make it through another winter. Now, its leaders and friends in the community are launching a fundraising drive they hope will pay off as a similar drive in 2007 did for the Boy Scout cabin.
The Girl Scout building was constructed in 1957 and had an addition placed at the rear of the structure in the 1980s.
