A chicken barbecue last month raised nearly $2,000 to support the Scouting program in Albion. The Knights of Columbus Council No. 1330 in Albion has been doing the Palm Sunday chicken barbecue for many years. The Knights recently presented three $650 checks to the Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop, and Venture Scouts with funds from the event totaling $1,950. The checks were presented by Carl Laubacher (Treasurer), back left; Larry Wolfe (Council/Boy Scout Liaison), back row second from right; and Bob Ballard (Grand Knight), back right. Scout leaders Dr. Tom and Sandra Madejski accepted the donations with several scout members.
