Watch For Our Storewide Sale Blanchard's 12 East State Presented by Rotarians at Lake and Here Camping Site Used Under Lease Since 71 ^ The Clear Lake Recreational ^•rounds company, consisting of he members of the Mason City md Clear Lake Rotary clubs Thursday evening gave title to amp Roosevelt to the Winnebago council of the Boy Scouts of America. The grounds company purchased he site in 1921 and it had been used for nearly 28 years by the 3oy Scouts, who leased the camp from the grounds company. Rotary took an active part in encouraging scout camps which were held at Clausen's cove in L817 and 1918, according to a history of the Winnebago council prepared by Hugh H. Shepard, one of the organizers. This interest continued after the camps were moved to where Camp Roosevelt now is located and since. Development Started The Rotary clubs took an option on the camp property in 1921 and soon after the Clear Recreational Grounds company was formed with the late Dr. W. J. Egloff as president, T. E. Sondrol, vice president; E. B. Stillman, secretary, and the late Herbert Hirsch, treasurer. The camp was named in honor of Theodore Roosevelt, a great lover of the out of doors. Soon afterward development was started and the old dining hall and a few of the cabins were built, according to the history. More cabins were built as time went on with the help of organizations in Charles City, Hampton, Belmond and .other towns who were then being served by the new Scout council. Now Serves 2.000 During the early years of the camp it served only from 75 to 100 boys a year." Now it is used by nearly 2,000 boys each year on 12 month basis. In addition to camping purposes it also is used as a training center for Scout leaders. It also has been used by such groups as the American PRESENTING DEED TO SCOUT CAMP—E. B.

In 1946 Jay M. Tubbesing became camp committee chairman and under his direction the present camp development program was launched. Rotarians Complimented In commenting on the transfer of title, Scout Executive J. W. Norfolk said, "the Rotary clubs of Mason City and Clear Lake have done a great service to scouting and through it to all boys in the council area. "Down through the years when the young council needed help, they provided that help. Now that the council has proven itself, in true Rotary style they have stepped aside, not to lose their interest in scouting but to pave the way for the council to continue an area-wide effort for the benefit of camping for boys. They can be proud of a job well done.'" DRIVE STILL ON Decorah—The total contribution to CROP in Winneshiek county is now over $7,000.
