  • The Boy Scout troop of Butterfield-Mountain Lake dedicated a fire ring in the memory of long-time scout master Leroy Erickson.
    The dedication ceremony took place Saturday, June 8, at the Boy Scout Camp on Voss Lake in Butterfield, Minn.
    The ring is cemented permanently into position at the park and will be used for scout grill-outs and camp fires. Scouts even got some use of the pit during their dedication ceremony by grilling hot dogs in the rain.
    Present for the dedication ceremony were boy scout troop members of past platoons as well as present members of the boy scout troop of Butterfield-Mountain Lake. Erickson’s family also took part in the memorial service and taps were played as the fire ring was dedicated.
    Erickson passed away this winter and was a long-time scout master in Butterfield, Minn.
