Boy Scout fundraiser is Tuesday
The Pushmataha Council of Boy Scouts of America will host its annual fundraiser and meal at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 19, in the Training Room of the Houston Fire Department in downtown Houston.
The event will see crawfish and Leon Hollingsworth’s “Famously Hot Seafood Gumbo” served to those in attendance and making donations.
All money raised will go to fund Pushmataha Council events and services.
Representatives from local businesses and industry as well as community individuals are invited to attend. All contributions are tax deductible.
For more information contact Harry Robinson at 456-0237 or Raymond Griffin at 456-4281.
The Pushmataha Area Council is part of the Boy Scouts of America and has headquarters in Columbus.
The Pushmataha Council renders service to Scout units in ten counties of North Mississippi, including Houston and Chickasaw County, providing skills training and character development primarily to boys between the ages of six and 21.
The council also serves girls and boys aged 14 through 21 through Venturing Crews and Explorer posts.
Donations to Tuesday’s fundraiser will benefit the council and help maintain Camp Seminole located on 285 acres about five miles north of Starkville
Camp Seminole hosts, among other activities, council summer camps, Cub Scout campouts, leadership training sessions, Wood Badge courses, and Order of the Arrow events. Camp Seminole was named for Seminole Manufacturing of Columbus, Mississippi, which donated significant financial support toward the camp’s construction.
Camp Seminole was built on land purchased by the Pushmataha Area Council in 1982. The need for building the camp came about when the lease on the previous council camp — Camp Palila — expired, and the Mississippi legislature did not renew the lease.
