Local Boy Scouts treated to party following successful fundraiser

March 13, 2013 

Cub Scouts Logan Shaner, left, and Jack Cann, both of Pack 45 in Nicholasville, joined more than 650 scouts and scouting volunteers at a lock-in at Gattitown March 2.

The Blue Grass Council, Boy Scouts of America recently celebrated the accomplishments of its scouts who sold more than $1.1 million in popcorn and batteries during its annual product sale last fall.

Scouts and their families who sold more than $600 in products were rewarded with a lock-in on March 2 at Gattitown, which featured unlimited game play and a pizza buffet.

More than 650 scouts and scouting volunteers were in attendance from the 55 counties of Kentucky served by the Blue Grass Council.

The funds raised through the sale will send many scouts to camps and on educational field trips and will cover the costs of registration, uniforms, materials and more.
