Lynne Christopher Romines is one of several who are sharing their memories of the Scout House. Here are her favorite ones:
"Oh my goodness if those walls could talk. I spent all summer every summer there. Swam from day light until 7 each night. Did water ballet, dived, played "dunk" which was flirt with boys and girls, danced my legs off in Scout House. Most all us girls got our first kiss in the cemetery next door."
The Scout House has been empty for more than four years. Athens Arts League is raising funds to renovate this iconic structure and re-purpose it into a music venue with a student music lab.
This 1930s era Scout House can become alive again so a new generation can make its own memories. Can you help us? Your donation of $10, $20, $50 or $100 will make it possible. You can make a tax-deductible donation at:
