Jude Hall gets a make-over


John Northenscold Jr., scoutmaster of Troop 219, and Assistant Senior Patrol Leader Kenny Nyquist hand the key to Jude Hall over to Maple Lake Mayor Lynn Kissock, Thursday, Oct. 23, at the building’s re-dedication ceremony. Behind them, Scouts (from left) Gabe Riviere, Samuel Riviere, Gabriel Smail and Jack Peterson look on.

Members of Boy Scouts Troop 219 listen as Betty Thomes, former member of the Maple Lake Jaycees, remembers the trouble they had moving Jude Hall to Bolduan Park back in 1982. The Municipal Airport donated the building to the Jaycees, but it fell apart on the way over.

From left, Maple Lake Mayor Lynn Kissock, city council member Deb Geyen and Scout leader Alan Loch look at a diagram the Jaycees put together back in 1982 when they started the Bolduan Park project. Loch found the diagram in the dumpster when the Boy Scouts started cleaning out Jude Hall one year ago. Much of what the Jaycees conceptualized came true, including ball fields, hockey rink and game pond.
