A campaign to fund Boy Scouts’ activities in the Lincoln Trail District reached its $55,000 goal.
The bulk of the money was collected as part of the Distinguished Citizen award dinner March 4, according to organizer Bill Barron.
The committee raised roughly $32,000 in advance of the dinner and collected contributions and commitments for another $20,000 from attendees on hand at Grace Heartland Church for the program honoring Larry Mengel, former director of Hardin County’s Habitat for Humanity chapter.
Barron, who serves on the Hardin and LaRue County Friends of Scouting Committee, said Monday a final solicitation effort by volunteers pushed the total to the collection target.
Local residents also were involved in two other recent fundraising efforts.
