Capitol Area Council will get a new home!

Former Boy Scout donates $2M for new center (BizJournals)
The Capitol Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America plans to build a new service center in Austin, thanks to a $2 million gift from council board member Frank Fickett.

All I can say about this is: THANK GOD! The current Capitol Area office/shop is a former church and it is cramped. They've been talking about a new Scout shop somewhere in north Austin for a year or two, but nothing has ever come of it. Maybe they'll find a site a little closer to my neck of the woods.
