Allohak Council calls community meeting

In an email to The Parkersburg News and Sentinel, Jeremy Cox, scoutmaster for Troop 116 in Parkersburg, said members recently were made aware of a plan by the national Boy Scouts of America to dissolve the Allohak Council and split its six districts into three other councils. The move also could affect Camp Kootaga in Wirt County which is overseen by the Allohak Council, he said.

“The Allohak Council is currently debt free and is operating in the black,” he said. “None of this make any sense.”

Cox said the community meetings are a way to get more voices heard.

“The information needs to be out there so that all of the districts’ membership can be at these meetings and know what is going on,” he said.

Additional community meetings are planned for 7 p.m. today in Athens, 7 p.m. Wednesday in Elkins, 7 p.m. Thursday in Clarksburg and 7 p.m. July 16 at the Knights of Columbus in Marietta.
