The dedication plaque reads:

Lowell Joseph Highley Memorial Chapel
Dedicated May 4, 1996

"… When their sorrow was turned into joy, and their mourning into a day of celebration." - Esther 9:22

This chapel is dedicated to the memory of Lowell Joseph Highley. "Joe" was killed in a car accident at the entrance to Cary Camp on September 11, 1993. He was an active member of Troop 226, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Logansport, Indiana, Takachsin Lodge No 173, and the Woapalanne Dance Team.

This chapel was built with the inspiration, vision, desire, and toil of those who will always love Joe as a son, brother, and friend. It is consecrated to the glory of God in memory of Joe Highley. It is our hope that in this sanctuary you will find what you seek in prayer, meditation, and worship. May all who enter be refreshed by their Creator and be given courage to exemplify that point of the Scout Law which teaches us to be reverent. Praise be to God.

Lowell Joseph Highley
June 8, 1979 - September 11, 1993
