R.E.S.C.U.E. Annual Meeting

Wayne/Susquehanna R.E.S.C.U.E. will host its annual public meeting on Wednesday, August 9, 7 p.m. at the Wayne County Visitors Center in downtown Honesdale, PA. This year’s feature presentation is by Bill and Stephanie Streeter, wildlife biologists and founders of the Delaware Valley Raptor Center (DVRC), a not-for-profit rehabilitation center in Milford, PA. “Close Encounters with Birds of Prey” will feature five live raptors, including a hawk, a falcon, two owls, and an eagle. The Streeters will discuss various issues facing wildlife today including predator/prey relationships, wildlife rehabilitation, and specific adaptations of the birds present.

Most of the birds treated at the center are returned to the wild.  However, due to the severity of their injuries, some birds are unable to survive in the wild and must remain in captivity. These birds become an important element in DVRC educational programs, offering both young and old a joyful and unforgettable experience.

This event is free and open to all ages. For more information contact (570) 798-2530.

BSA To Honor Ira Reynolds

Ira Reynolds, a Susquehanna resident for 80 years will receive special recognition at this year’s Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner, given by The Baden-Powell Council, Delahanna District of the Boy Scouts of America. Ira will be honored along with Dick and Eloise Masters, this year’s Distinguished Citizen Award recipients.

Ira Reynolds.

Ira celebrated his 104th birthday in January of 2006 and has been actively involved in scouting since 1914. The Boy Scouts of America will be presenting Ira with an 80-year service award. Ira helped to organize the first Boy Scout Troop, Troop 81, in Susquehanna in 1934; was the member of the site selection committee in 1952 and 1953 that recommended the current Camp Tuscarora location; and has served at the unit, district, and council level in the Baden-Powell Council. Ira received the Silver Beaver award in 1948 and took the Woodbadge Course in 1950. In 1987, Ira received the District Award of Merit for his service to the Delahanna District.

Ira is involved in the greater Susquehanna community and is a member of Canawacta Lodge No. 360 F. & A.M.; a member of the Susquehanna United Methodist Church; and a faithful member and supporter of the Susquehanna Depot Historical Society.

R. G. Dealaman, a recipient of the Silver Antelope award, the highest volunteer award bestowed by the Boy Scouts of America on a regional level, sums it up best by stating, “Ira Reynolds is the living example of the Scout Motto, ‘Be Prepared’ and the Scout Slogan, ‘Do a Good Turn Daily.’ He has always lived the Scout Oath and Law in all that he has done”.

The Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner honoring Dick and Eloise Masters and Ira Reynolds will be held on August 11 at the Summit in New Milford. Information or questions on the event may be received by contacting Loren Stone, Delahanna District Finance Chair, at 278-3801 ext. 329.
