Check out the article in the River Reporter this week on the Ten Mile river Scout Museum.

For the 85th year of operation of the Ten Mile River Scout Camps
(TMR), and the 15th year of the Ten Mile River Scout Camp Museum, the
general public is invited to visit and explore the camp’s history.

Ten Mile River Scout Camps occupy 12,000 acres in the towns of
Tusten, Highland, Cochecton and Bethel. The property was originally
purchased and organized by Franklin Roosevelt and others in the
mid-1920s. When FDR created the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) to
employ out-of-work young men, he signed an executive order creating the
only CCC camp on private property at Ten Mile River. The TMR Museum
documents this history along with the history of Boy Scouting,
especially in New York City. A nine-minute movie will be shown depicting
how Roosevelt brought New York City Boy Scouts to Sullivan County, and
an enormous collection of maps, pictures and documents relating to local
towns, local history and the history of scouting are on display.

    This is very interesting, and I wish that I could see it. I do however have a question. I have the entire 75th diamond jubilee set with the white border. How many of these sets are there, because I have never seen any of the other patches, even individually. Can I get some info on this set? Thanks in advance! penguinsfanatic87@gmail.com
