The movement to start a Boy Scout Museum here in Los Alamos keeps chugging along, with an eye toward increasing its visibility.
The organization, known as the Los Alamos Boy Scout Museum Society, is currently looking for people interested in helping its members start a museum, or just curious about it, to come along with them on a field trip Saturday.
Members of the LABSM will be heading to Raton to investigate a scouting museum there, mainly to interview owners Susan and Dennis Downing. Anyone interested in attending should meet with LABSM members at 7:30 a.m. at the "Y" intersection in White Rock, where NM 502 meets NM 4. From there, a carpool will be arranged for the four hour trip.
According to the Downings, the museum has been in existence for 20 years and features a wide cross-section of scouting memorabilia through the years.
According to LABSM founder Vernon Kerr, the society is also looking at collecting memorabilia from former scouts to place in display cases at the Mesa Public Library and the new county municipal building. At a recent LABSM meeting, they explored their options, as some of the memorabilia they gather for the cases will be pretty valuable, even if the value is just sentimental.
