Boy Scouts learn winter survival skills
Despite the unseasonably warm weather this year, the Louisiana Purchase Council held its 2012 Klondike Derby on Saturday at Camp T.L. James in Downsville.
The Louisiana Purchase Council is the largest boy scout council in Louisiana.
“Our council comprises from Bastrop, Sterlington, come all the way across to Ruston, go all the way down to Vidalia and back up,” Derby Co-Chair Brenda Simmons said.
