Wine-A-Ree Supports Scouting Programs

Support over 1,500 young people in Southern Indiana and have a great time tasting the best local wines that we could find! The Wine-A-Ree returns to Columbus on November 8, 2014, at The Commons. This year's event will offer tastings from 11 local wineries.

SCI Kiwanis Balloon Fest 2014

September 12, 13, & 14, 2014 SCI Kiwanis Balloon Fest will be an awesome Scouting or family event. We will host 20 colorful, enormous hot air balloons at this event and there is nothing more beautiful than to see these multicolored balloons ascend into the sky at dusk. Another popular event of the Balloon Fest is the Night Glow. Following each evening's launch the balloons return to the festival to conduct a Night Glow. At this event, the balloons are tethered to the ground and they use their propane heaters to light up the multicolored balloons synchronized to music. It is one of the most fascinating sites imaginable. Tethered balloon rides will be available throughout the event at a nominal cost.

Proceeds from this event help keep Scouting programs affordable for all Scouts, helping to develop tomorrow's leaders through adventures today! Held at Sugar Creek Sporting Clays & Hunting Preserve on September 5, 2014.

Drive for Five

Drive for Five is a challenge to Cub Scout Packs to achieve membership success. We all know that Scouting works best when a lot of people are involved. Drive for Five encourages and rewards packs for planning outstanding program, organizing effective recruitment events, and ensuring that the pack has the structure necessary to provide fun and adventure to youth. What can you earn? Pinewood Derby cars will be awarded to qualifying packs based on the number of Scouts registered on October 31, 2014. Pinewood Derby cars will be available for pickup at the Council Service Center and at Roundtables in December 2014.
