Camp Robert Faries

1949: Almost complete is the Camp Robert Faries Boy Scout trading post being constructed on weekends by volunteer Scouters. District Commissioner Edgar Meldahl said it will be a central gathering place where the Scouts can buy supplies and ‘write their mothers how lonesome they are.’ Working, from left, are Leonard Erickson, Troop 1 Scoutmaster; Paul Simroth; and W.J. ‘Jake’ Webber. Erickson and Webber are district camping men. (H&R file photo)
