Staff Writer

The Bucktail Council invites family and friends of David Love to join them on Saturday, Sept. 21, at 2 p.m. at the Hazel and Lawrence Reitz Chapel at Camp Mountain Run for 26th Annual Memorial Service. David Love, of Ridgway, will have his name added to the monument located at the site that serves as a remembrance to dedicated scouters. 
Love was a long-time resident of Ridgway having moved to the borough when he was a child. He was a Boy Scout and attained the rank of Eagle Scout with three Palms, he was also chief of the Order of the Arrow for two years and remained active in scouting throughout his life.
From 1952-1954 he served in the U.S. Army in the Panama Canal Zone. 
Love contributed to the community in numerous ways, from his 22 years with the fire department with two years as chief, his years spent as owner and operator of Love's Canoe, his involvement in building the Tri-County Rails to Trails and the Laurel Mill Cross Country Ski trail system, and involvement on numerous other local clubs, boards, charities and activities.
At the First Mountain Festival this January, the Elk County Chamber of Commerce posthumously presented the Key to the City to Love, who was a great lover of the outdoors. Accepting the key on his behalf were his two daughters Pam and Kim Love.
The public is invited to Camp Mountain Run on Sunday for the ceremony honoring Love. The Lawrence and Hazel Reitz Lakefront Chapel Church is located on Mountain Run Road in Penfield, on the grounds of Camp Mountain Run.
