Patrol Lads head to Legionville in 1959

July 9, 1959

21 school patrol boys gathered Sunday morning just before boarding a bus for Legionville camp at Brainerd. Thanks to the generosity of Hastings sponsors who paid the $22.50, including $4 transportation cost per boy for this “once in a boyhood” venture to a beautiful campsite.
