Memorial Service for ASM Bill Hanusiak: Sunday Oct 18th. at 9 am at camp ithiel

Posted by michaeltneff on Oct 16 2020 - 10:45am

Scouts and parents, please plan to come to Assistant Scoutmaster Bill Hanusiak's Scout’s Own Memorial Service on the morning of Sunday, October 18th at 9 am at Camp Ithiel in Gotha, FL. All family, scouts, scouters and parents are welcome to come. Scouting uniforms are very welcome and the rest can come casual. Bring a camp chair to make yourselves comfortable. Scouting was a big part of Bill’s last 10 years and he would love this type of memorial by those he dedicated the last 10 years of his life to. Please bring your favorite Mr Bill story to the memorial to share with family and friends. Bill is being cremated and per his wishes, his ashes will be spread in the mountains at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, we are asking that donations be made to Camp Ithiel, 2037 Hemple Avenue, Gotha, FL 34734.  Donations via PayPal can be sent to info@campithiel.org    The camp has been incredibly generous to the three scout units that are chartered there and that Bill was a leader in. Camp Ithiel was like a second home to Bill and he spent many happy hours there working with the scouts.  We will be observing COVID safety, wearing masks at the memorial service, and the service will be conducted outdoors where guests can spread out and socially distance. Family from out of town are encouraged to participate virtually to avoid having to travel. Details to come on the virtual forum.
