The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana St.. Ben Cub Scouts seek names for fiftieth" By PAUL R. LEINGANG Message editor men who dispense justice daily building campfires and racing ureen Hayden said. fiftietb anniversary cele- at St. Benedict Church, Evans- that both Vanderburgh County i 21,1997 1960 shows two unidenti- t, taken during an annual Meinrad. Scouting orga- people in these and other Judge Maurice O'Connor and Vanderburgh Juve- nile Court Judge Robert Lensing were once St. Ben's Cub Scouts. "It makes them seem a little more human," she said. "It's wonderful to see adults as they were when they were fun-loving kids." Hayden and others connected with cub scout- ing at tbe parish are assembling bits and pieces of the pack's 50-year history and inviting former scouts to return for the celebration, April 13. They are also looking for some help in identifying old photographs. Much of the materials from the past years of scouting has been stashed in a storage room, and some has already been lost as new projects required storage space, too. People who have been invited to the anniver- sary party are being asked to lend their Scout memorabilia for display that evening. Hayden also hopes they can help identify the scouts pictured in the "slew of old photos in storage." Some of the preserved materials are newspa- per clippings, including one about "Nuns' Day at Camp" from the Southwestern Indiana Register, a predecessor of the Message. Dated Sept. 1, 1961, the front page story report- ed that the local Kouples' Klub had come to the rescue, offering to foot the bill for the annual "Nun's Day" at Camp Pohoka. Sponsored by the Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting, the event drew 120 nuns from throughout the diocese. The Nuns' Day program included "volleyball, badminton, fishing, croquet, archery, rifle range, water-front events and council fire. The nuns will be permitted a choice in activities' participation under the leadership of members of the scouting committee." The St. Ben's Cub and Boy Scouts were in charge of demonstrating "camping and cookout" at the event. The Boy Scout Troop pre-dates the Cub Scouts in the parish, according to Hayden. The Boy Scouts are working on re-creating their history, too, and planning to celebrate their seventy-fifth anniversary in the year 2000. 3 Who are they? Four Cub Scouts from St. Benedict pose for a picture at Camp Pohoka at "Nuns' Day" in the summer of 1960. The names of the four are not recorded. Planners of a fiftieth anniversary celebration are seeking to identi- fy photos in the scout archives. 00orth Mentioning...
