William Scholes, Friend of Scouting

Colaborador: PatriciaJo Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

William Scholes was a longtime scouter, and was recognized for his dedication with the (council level) Silver Beaver and (regional level, awarded by the National Court of Honor) Silver Antelope distinguished service awards. On his famous golden Ford Taurus, "The Flying Saddle," the only bumper sticker proclaimed "I'm proud of my Eagle Scout." The sticker should have been plural, as many young men benefited from his leadership. During his tenure as council president, he oversaw the purchase of land for the Hull Valley/Aspen Ridge scout camp at Hull Valley, Idaho.

A look at Bill Scholes through his basement

Colaborador: PatriciaJo Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Bill's turquoise tie pin in this photo is one of many such pieces he produced himself from gems and precious stones he collected and tumbled. The north end of the basement great room in the Scholes' Smithfield home was dedicated to a workbench housing the necessary equipment, along with shelf after shelf of Bill's considerable theological library, a large (perhaps 7 or 8 foot long) Pat Cannel painting of Christ in Gethsemane that used to hang in the Smithfield First Ward chapel. The painting (returned to Sister Cannel following the death of the Scholes couple in 2006) was stored behind a very loud floral print sofa that seemed to be upholstered with rough carpet. The theological books were inherited by various grandchildren, and included a complete set of the Journal of Discourses, many bound omnibus volumes of the Improvement Era, various Bible translations, the version of the Doctrine and Covenants used by the RLDS Church, and many, many others. The south end of this basement room featured a mounted deer's head above a fireplace, another book shelf containing children's novels, and a cabinet in which Bill stored his coin collection and his famous jars of dimes, which he would use to finance home improvements, such as appliance purchases. He taught his grandchildren about various types of coins, showing where to find mint marks, and helping them start organized coin collections. The basement also included some narrow storage space where daughter Barbara Scholes Kent and her family kept items such as mission papers, Halloween costumes, and Christmas decorations for many years. No holiday could begin without a visit to Grandma and Grandpa Scholes to search for the necessary supplies in the basement. The northwest corner of the basement was the "fruit room," home to many preserves, such as jars of prunes, which Bill loved and would often offer visiting family members. This room also housed Bill's fossil collection, and had a "secret passage" under the stairs leading to the work bench area. The southwest corner of the basement contained the home's third bedroom, alternately called the "Orange Room" because of its enthusiastic shag carpeting, or the "Bug Room," because it was not used, except by grandchildren, who were not known for vacuuming. In any event, the Orange Room featured a four-poster bed with brass accents that the children enjoyed spinning. A beautiful clock sat on a desk in this room--it was a gift to Bill for recognition of his many years of teaching in the Church Education System, where he served as a seminary teacher, seminary principal, and institute teacher. The grandchildren loved to wind the clock and listen to it chime the Carillon of Westminster. The clock is now in the possession of granddaughter and namesake Sara Scholes.
