Timberhaven’s motto “Your Dream … Our Passion” is relevant every single day. But on the day Timberhaven was chosen by Juniata Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America Seven Mountains Scout Camp to design and manufacture the new John M. Kriner II memorial lodge, the tagline held especially true.
“It was and continues to be an honor to have been selected as the manufacturer for the Kriner lodge. Working alongside Jim Kennedy, Scout Executive/Executive Director, to bring Mr. and Mrs. John M. Kriner’s honorary lodge to life.” says Lynda Tompkins, Timberhaven’s principal. “It is deeply gratifying to see this project come to fruition in memory of John M. Kriner II.”
