In just a little while there will be a new indoor place to host a child’s birthday party, family picnic or informal event for fewer than 50 people at the Arcade Village Park.  Over the winter the Streets and Parks crew renovated what is known as the Boy Scout Building, and it’s almost ready to go.

Under the direction of S&P Supervisor Dan Laird, renovations included new walls to separate storage areas for the Scouts and Summer Recreation from the main room, an updated sink and refrigerator in the kitchen area, fresh paint on the walls and floors, and new tables and chairs. Although there is no stove in the kitchen, there are several electrical outlets for appliances like blenders or crock pots.  The bathrooms at the end of the building have also been spruced up.  All that remains is to install safety doors to bring the building up to code.

Although it has always been known as the Boy Scout Building, local Scoutmaster Dr. Dale Deahn says it never belonged to the Scouts, they were just the ones who put it to use.  Thanks to the updates, the public can now use it as well.  Trustee Donna Schiener, who initiated the project, says usage fees have been set at $35 for Village residents and $50 for others.

To find out more, or to arrange to rent the building in the future for your event, call the Village of Arcade at 585-492-1111.
