Three Harbors Council – Wisconsin Merger

There have been a couple of notices on Patch-L regarding this Wisconsin Council Merger.

More than 24,000 youth in Scouting programs in Kenosha, Milwaukee and Racine counties have now banded together in a new Boy Scout council as the result of a consolidation vote on Wednesday. Representatives of the Milwaukee County Council and the Southeast Wisconsin Council, that serve Kenosha and Racine counties, voted to consolidate into one council that will be called the Three Harbors Council, Boy Scouts of America.

As to the staus of the OA Lodges which I believe are Mikano Lodge #230 and Mascouten Lodge #8 respectively:

The Order of the Arrow lodge in Kenosha and Racine Counties and the Order of the Arrow lodge in Milwaukee County will continue separate operations with the objective of forming one new lodge within eighteen months after the Effective Date.

There is also talk of merger activity in Michigan, reported by Roy More on his blog.

Anyone aware of ongoing merger talks in New York?
