According to Gray, Georgia resident Robbie Thomas, who is an Eagle Scout and Forestry student at the University of Georgia, "The city of Macon has decided to tear it down in late September. Please spread the word that on September 4th from 2-5 we will be having an "open hut" for anyone, especially former scouts to come say goodbye to this piece of history that has influenced countless lives and taught many boys the American way."

Thomas asks that should you have any ideas on how to save the Troop 5 hut please let your voice be heard!  There is still time and one option that is a possibility, is to move it. "If anyone knows of a place (preferably in Macon) that would be available please contact him via Facebook or the GoFundMe page that has been started.  The GoFundMe campaign has been started in an effort to get the hut moved to another location!   You can find the GoFundMe link here:

Thomas also encourages the community and all Boy Scouts to like the page specifically dedicated to the Hut to see further information and updates.
