Camp Meriwether Rm 503 "In Memory of Cole Wilson"

Donation protected
I met Cole Wilson ca. 2010 (give or take a year) when he entered Boy Scout Troop 870 and became friends with my son. He would carpool with us to camping events and they would hang out together (mostly at the Wilson house, because it was WAY cooler than our apartment!) on other weekends...and he always made my son feel welcome and appreciated and...happy.
Scouting was a way of life for Cole and I'll always be thankful for the memories I have of him in his element: the outdoors.

When the opportunity came to dedicate one of the new bunk houses at Camp Meriwether - I jumped on it. I love the idea of his name being carried through the years and Scouts knowing there was once a soul deserving enough of THAT.

I'm creating this fundraiser not necessarily because I'm asking for help, but because many others have already expressed their wish to be a part of it. The help would be nice, don't get me wrong - I just want people to contribute from their hearts, not out of necessity or obligation.

You can donate once, or set up monthly donations.
This will continue through April 1, 2025 (yes, we have three years to submit the donor amount).

Thank you...for being a part of this!
He would have such a big smile seeing his name out there
