1960s to 1970s
During the 1960s and 1970s, The Sixth Ward Citizens Association sponsored Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cubs and Explorers. Prominent members of the community recalled their time with the Association.
Although the Scouts and many of the activities first sponsored by the Sixth Ward Citizens Association continued well into the 1980s and beyond, the Association was no longer a central force in the daily activities of the community. Declining membership and the passing of its members lead to a shift from the centralized group to smaller groups of neighbors concerned about their safety.
