Longhouse Council - Pathways - January 8, 2021
Vol. #3 Issue #1

Thursday January 14, 2021 at 7pm
Each year, the Longhouse Council normally hosts a dinner gathering in recognition of the achievements of the year’s Eagle Class. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are not able to gather in person this year due to the public health crisis; however, a virtual celebration has been scheduled for 7pm on Thursday, January 14, 2021.
We will be continuing our recent tradition of inducting one or more older Eagle Scouts who have demonstrated outstanding achievement at the local state or regional level into our Eagle Scout Hall of Fame and our special guest speaker is Robert Ward, Eagle Class of 1975, Set Designer, Stage Manager, Production Prop Head on past Broadway musicals such as Hedwig and the Angry Itch, The Big Fish, and currently, The Book of Mormon .
We will be sending out details on the way you and your family can participate virtually soon. For our 2020 Eagle Scouts you will also be asked to share a short video message.
Please mark your calendars and refer any questions to Dinner Chair, Patrick Rao at or Ellen Tyler at 315-463-0201, ext. 103.
