National BSA trying to grab local assets

That was the headline of an editorial in the website.  I had previously written about the absorption of  Cayuga County Council by Hiawatha Seaway council which began in the summer of 2009.  The combined council is now called Longhouse Council.

Here is an editorial telling the other side.

We, the members of the boards of the Cayuga County Council and Owasco Camp Association, want to thank the staff at The Citizen for the opportunity to tell our friends and neighbors about the cases where the Boy Scouts of America has sued our local scout Council for nearly $1 million the community has donated. They are seeking to take Camp Rotary, and likely sell it like the BSA has done countless times in its efforts to “consolidate.”
