ALBION – Boy Scouts in Albion celebrated a successful year in Scouts with a picnic, camp-out and other fun at the Albion Sportsmen’s Club on Keitel Road.

Scouts on Saturday went fishing and rode in a paddleboat. The top photo shows Noah Shiffer (left), 16, and Jace Conn in the paddleboat. Noah was happy to get out on the water after spending the morning working on his Eagle Scout project, an ambitious gardening effort at Hospice of Orleans.

Jonathan Judd, 11, caught several fish in the former quarry.

Today is forecast for a high of 77 with a chance for thunderstorms. The National Weather Service says it will be mostly sunny on Monday with a high of 80, followed by a high of 78 on Tuesday with a chance for heavy rain.
