Scouts adopt Riverview Park, boat launch after cleanup

CHASE BOTTORF/THE EXPRESS Members of Lock Haven Boy Scout Troop 711 and Cub Scout Pack 66 pose with Woodward Township Supervisors Wayne Love, Kyle Coleman and John Barth after unveiling signs which notify the public that the troops have adopted Riverview Park and the boat launch.

LOCKPORT — The Lock Haven area Boy Scout Troop 711 and Cub Scout Pack 66 adopted both Riverview Park and the nearby boat launch recently. The troop and pack are chartered by the Great Island Presbyterian Church.

On July 13, the boys and girls met to dedicate the adoption with two signs — located at the entrance of the boat launch and one next to the main pavilion at Riverview Park.

“It was a long road to finalize the adoption of Riverview Park and the Lockport Boat Launch,” said Lori Marshall, cub scout treasurer.

Scouts, alongside Clinton County CleanScapes, helped clean up the Lockport area in order to keep the parks cleaner for preservation and enjoyment.

Members of the Woodward Township supervisor board, Chairman Wayne Love, Supervisor Kyle Coleman and Supervisor John Barth, were in attendance for the dedication.

Scouts, parents, organizers and supervisors posed with the signs as they smiled knowing what good was done making Clinton County better.

The pack meets every Wednesday except the third Wednesday of the month from September through May from 6 to 7 p.m. The main contact for the pack and the troop is Ashley Sparrow at 570-660-9673. The troop meets every Monday, all year long.

Both, the pack and the troop, meet at The Great Island Presbyterian Church on Water Street in Lock Haven. During warm weather they meet at the Riverview Park.

“We will be having a recruitment on Sunday, Sept. 18, from 3 to 5 p.m. at Riverview Park. We will be having our 2nd annual Lego Pinewood Derby, water bottle rockets and other fun things to do,” Marshall said.
