    the Scouts were the big draw for families with kids the right age there.

    Then a new pastor arrived and within six months the Scouts were gone.

    Out of the building, both Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts -- and the BSA troop there had just celebrated its 35th year.

    New pastor got moved a few months later but the church / troop never recovered, and several years later efforts to bring back Scouting with a Venture crew also flopped. Very sad.
