Name That Council – Hiawatha Seaway Council

Hiawatha Seaway Council President Robert Berger announced on November 11th, 2009 the formation of an ad hoc Committee to coordinate the process of selecting a new name for our combined Boy Scout Council.

The committee will consist of five members representing, marketing, public relations, and communications; and will draw members from Cayuga County, the Syracuse Area, and the North Country.

The suggestion nomination process has ended. Stay tuned for more information!

Steve Austin reports:

the 2 finalists that the Executive Board is voting on now are:
Longhouse Council and Adirondack Foothills Council.  I will let you know what wins as soon as I hear.
No word if the Lodge will be changing its name/number.

“Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade where I choose, free to choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to talk, think, and act for myself–and then I will obey every law or submit to the penalty.” – Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce Tribe
