A memorial service is planned for Mr. Jim Ford on Saturday, November 14, 2015, at 3:00pm.  The service will be held at St. John’s Outdoor Chapel on the campus of Belin Memorial United Methodist Church – located just across the drive from the Walton Scout Hut – with Reverend Scott Johnson presiding.  In case of inclement weather, the service will be held across campus in the Belin Sanctuary located on Hwy 17 Business on the inlet.


Jim has a long history with Unit 396 at Belin and was key in reviving our Troop nearly 20 years ago. Many of our earlier scouts are now adults in the community/state and many are attending college.  Please utilize our network of Scouting to notify members of the 396 family of this service.


All scouts from Unit 396 are asked to dress in uniform for the service.  Scouts and scout alumni will gather at the Scout Hut at 2:30pm to organize for the procession and presentation of the flags.  Scout family is invited to take a seat at St. John’s Outdoor Chapel prior to the service at 3:00pm.
