The 8th Annual Seafood Boil and Auction

The 8th Annual Seafood Boil and Auction was a booming success! This event raised over $60,000, which will be used to impact the lives of the youth that are being served in the Anthony Wayne Area Council. There were around 225 individuals in attendance for this night of fun, fellowship, food, and fundraising. The event this year was the best yet and it was only made possible through our sponsors, volunteers, attendees, and staff.

 On behalf of the Anthony Wayne Area Council, we would like to express our deepest appreciation to all of these people and companies.You have made a difference in the lives of the youth in Northeast Indiana by giving your time, talent, and treasure.

Lincolnway District Scouting Endowment

“Carry On”
Our vision is to “endow” the District Executive Position in Lincolnway District. That is, to raise enough in a designated endowment fund to pay the annual salary of the Lincolnway District Executive with the annual interest accrued by the fund. This would mean, in effect, that even in lean financial times, there will be enough money available to maintain a District Executive for Lincolnway District. That, in turn, will secure the future of Scouting in Kosciusko and Whitley counties for years, perhaps decades to come.

Pledge Your Support Today!

Please help us in our effort to endow the District Executive position for Lincolnway District. Select a giving level that best fits your budget, make your pledge now and complete your payment before April 1, 2019 to ensure that your initial pledge will be matched 4:1 by the KCCF. (All gifts are tax deductible.)

If you are able to continue your initial gift for an additional 4-5 years, you will be making a significant contribution to our overall $1,000,000 goal!

For instance: An initial gift of $100 paid by April 1, 2019 qualifies for a KC 50 match of
$400 Total=$500.

By continuing with annual gifts of $100 for an additional 5 years, add another $500.
That’s a total of $1,000 toward securing the future of Scouting in our community!

Maddie loves spending time with her dad as she learns new Scout skills at her den meetings. She recently participated in a raingutter regatta and the Super Scout Cub-O-Ree.

What is Scouts BSA?
For the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America will be open to young women.

Scouts BSA is a year-round program for boys and girls in fifth grade through high school that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves.

In Scouts BSA, young men and women go places, test themselves, and have one-of-a-kind adventures that can’t be found anywhere else.

The first all female Scouts BSA Troop in the Anthony Wayne Area Council will be chartered by the American Legion Post 97 in Auburn, Indiana beginning in February 2019.
