2011 Boy Scout Golden Eagle Dinner to Honor Dan Cathy

Community leaders and members of the Fayette business community will gather at the 2011 Fayette County Boy Scout Golden Eagle Dinner. The 2nd annual dinner is a fundraiser for the Flint River Council. Funds raised support the local scouting program and help keep the costs of scouting down for the local boys who participate in scouting. Last year’s dinner raised $67, 642, and organizers are hoping to top that number this year. The Flint River Council, Boy Scouts of America, has served Fayette County since 1927, shaping the lives of young people by fostering the development of a strong values-centered life and training the leaders of tomorrow through a partnership with families and communities.
