Clifton Springs is a sister town 3 miles to the west of Phelps.
I had forgotten that Dittmer was a Lewiston council camp and not a Finger Lakes
I lived in Phelps from the age of 12 to 17 when I went into the USAF.
Later on I lived in Clifton Springs for a few years and that's when I got back
into scouts for a couple of years. I worked around the country for about 15
years and settled down here in Kansas working in the aircraft industry. Have
only been back in scouting for a couple of years.
BTW Clifton gets the springs from the mineral springs sanitarium (now a
hospital) that was popular at the turn of the century.
