Legion transfers deed to park so that log cabin can rise again

PORT TOWNSEND — With the signing of names on a document, the resurrection of a log cabin for local Scouts is one step closer to reality.

“This is a milestone for us,” said Pat McMinds.

“We would not be able to build the Scout cabin without the donation of this park.”

McMinds is president of the Fred Lewis Scout Cabin Association, which on Tuesday afternoon accepted the gift of the LeRoy Carroll Memorial Park from American Legion Post 26.

The signing was witnessed by post officers and members, representatives of Elks Lodge No. 317, Scout leaders, Scouts and volunteers.

The local Elks lodge sponsors two Scout groups that formerly met at the Scout cabin on Morgan Hill, which was torn down three years ago.

The deed to the Legion park, on Discovery Road near the entrance to Port Townsend, is the first step in rebuilding the cabin.

“Thank you all for hanging in there with us ,” McMinds said.

“We will get this cabin built.”
