American Values Luncheon in Gadsden
The Lookout Mountain District of the Boys Scouts of America held its annual American Values Luncheon today in Gadsden. A crowd of about 150 people gathered to enjoy lunch, honor a couple of local men for their contributions to the community and to hear remarks from former Alabama football coach Gene Stallings. This year’s program honored Fred Sington, Jr – who is the director of the Gadsden Airport Authority and manager of the Northeast Alabama Regional Airport – and Ronnie Watkins – the owner of Ronnie Watkins Ford in Gadsden. The Boys Scouts annual banquet also acts as a fundraiser for the group. More than $20,000 was raised today and District Executive Jessica Millican says that the money is very important to scouting.
