12 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, JULY 27, 1978 Fifty Apartments For Elderly Planned; Bid For Funds Made To FHA A fifty-unit apartment com- plex for the elderly will be constructed by the developers of the Patrick Henry Estates if it can get a $1 million dollar loan from the Farmers Home Ad- ministration. The preliminary plans, sub- mitted by Jefferson Associates, have already been approved by the Jefferson County Planning Commission. The plans show that the developers would construct 25 buildings in clusters of five. Each of the buildings would house a one-bedroom apart- ment, and consist of 658 square feet. Once completed, the apart- ments would be available to low income elderly with rents subsidized through the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development. The complex would be located on an 80-acre tract of land off U.S. Route 340 about three miles east of Charles Town. Tentative plans call for providing a community center for the elderly, possibly by renovating Sojourner's Inn, an old house still on the property. The developers, in seeking the loan from FHA said they will put $100,000 of their own money into the project. The application for funds was slowed down when members of the Region 9 Planning and Development council requested more in- formation on the project.

"That's right" .she says, "parents sign the requirements as a Cub Scout advances, they participate in pack activities, and they provide leadership for the small group of boys in the neighborhood who form a den." There are 549 Cub Scouts in our three county area, Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan County, with 100 adults who are pack and den leaders and committee members. Cub Scouts are 8, 9, and 10 years of age, but a boy can join the pack in his neighborhood as soon as he has completed the second grade. Since boys were Cub Scouts in the early 1930's one feature has been the use of women to be Cubmaster and men to be den leaders. The Shenandoah Area Council provides many program materials, training service to the 17 Cub Scout packs in this area as a part of its operating budget. Funds for the budget come from the United Ways of Jefferson and Berkeley County and from the council's annual sustaining membership enrollment. Another part of the organization of Cub Scout Packs is the use of Scouts who serve as activities assistants in Cub Scout dens. These den chiefs are ap- pointed as Scout troop officers and are trained by the pack or by the troop's den chief coor- dinator, Neweome said.
