2005 MUSEUM HIGHLIGHTS
The Museum organized an exhibit on the history of the Ten Mile River Scout Camps in the lobby of the Rudin Management Company Building at 345 Park Ave. (51st. Street), from Nov. 8-11, 2004. The lobby was made available courtesy of Jack Rudin of Rudin Management. Mr. Rudin, along with his brother, the late Lewis Rudin, were inducted into the Ten Mile River Hall of Fame in a ceremony that took place in the lobby on Monday, Nov. 8, 2004. The late Morty Hyman and the late Nick Dale, forever associated with the Brooklyn Scout camps, were also inducted.
The elaborate exhibit, almost 40 ft. long, required moving four display cases and memorabilia from the Museum at Headquarters Camp, T.M.R. to midtown Manhattan. Eight-foot tall display boards included a T.M.R. history timeline, historic and recent T.M.R. photos, and biographies of the four honorees. A wide-screen television played a movie on the origin of the T.M.R. camps. Staff and camp photo albums were also available for review. See photos of the exhibit.
