OCC History Center program April 14 describes century of Scouting in Pikes Peak region

       The 100-year anniversary of the Boy Scouts of the Pikes Peak Region will be discussed in a program at the Old Colorado City History Center Friday, April 14 at 11 a.m.
       “The Pikes Peak Region Scouting Story” will be presented by John Brown, a retired Air Force officer and long-time Boy Scout volunteer.
       The program will include a display of memorabilia and a signing for a book that Brown co-wrote, which “provides a pictorial narrative of the regional organization's legacy,” a press release states.
       Located at 1 S. 24th St., the volunteer-run History Center offers a bookstore and museum on a daily basis. Both are free to the public except during programs, which are $5 for non-members of the Old Colorado City Historical Society (OCCHS).
       Winter hours are currently in effect - Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, including how to become an OCCHS member, drop by the center or call when it's open at 636-1225.
