Florence Kiwanians Help Build Camp Westmoreland Craft Lodge
Trevor and Bob Willhide did the most work. Kiwanians Michael and Jacqueline Broder, Ron Paulus along with Keith Underwood and his nephew pitched in to help construct this much needed building. The power was out at Camp Westmoreland following the storms of Saturday evening (11/18/17) so the crew couldn't' finish putting up the batten strips. Trevor did get a couple of coats of paint on the building and it is starting to look great! A couple more hours of work, a little more paint, and the camp will have another 1st class building that will serve our area's Boy Scouts well for years to come!
