longhousesiteplansmall001aLast month Snohomish County approved the first of the required permits for the new Longhouse at Camp Pigott. These authorizations are for the septic system and drain field for the bathrooms at the site. Having the restrooms at the longhouse was one of the county's stipulations for the new building. In addition to this exciting the new site drawings were released. With the civil drawing now in had the Longhouse Committee is moving forward and will apply for final building and site permitting in the next couple of weeks!

Once permits are in hand look for construction to start in late spring once the site dries up from our long winter. The first project will be to run water and power to the longhouse site.

Unselfish leadership and service have brought us to within $18,000 of our goal to start construction this spring. Your timely contribution and support can assure restoration of our solemn place of friendship. Please join us now in this extraordinary opportunity and consider a tax deductible donation to the Longhouse fund. Your gift will help secure and sustain this treasured resource that Scouts of today and tomorrow can share with us...an experience like no other.

Remember, to spur the final wave of support former Lodge Adviser and artist Don Van Wieringen released the final 200 copies of the poster used to promote the longhouse repair work in 1992. These posters will go the first 200 people who donate $100 in new money to the project. Many have already been claimed! When they are gone they are gone!
