From Lifestyles magazine, Dierks Boy Scout Camp ‘Liberty Circle’ dedication set Oct. 6
By NeTseO Trails Council
Oct 5, 2007 :
What began as the lifelong dream of a man whose name will always be synonymous with the finest Scouting has to offer is now a reality.
The NeTseO Trails Council, Boy Scouts of America announces that the “Liberty Circle” project at Camp Dierks Boy Scout Camp near Wright City, Oklahoma is complete and the dedication has been set for Saturday, October 6 at 2:00 p.m. at the camp.
The “Circle” centers around a scale model of the Statue of Liberty, which is one of only 16 presented to various members of Congress and/or state governors in 1951. This particular Lady Liberty was presented to the Scout Council by then-U.S. Congressman and House Speaker Sam Rayburn of Bonham. The area surrounding the statue includes four flagpoles (for U.S., Oklahoma, Texas and Boy Scout Council Flags) inside individual circles, enclosed by a larger circle, all interconnected with a pathway of bricks.
The bricks mentioned above lead, from all four directions, to the base of our Liberty Sister. Each brick contains the name of Eagle Scouts, Silver Beaver Award recipients and Vigil Order of the Arrow members from the council. You can read the entire article here.
