Scouters of Holmes County is having its annual Father’s Day weekend chicken barbecue fundraiser.

According to Kevin Mullet, vice president and barbecue chairperson, “We grill homemade chicken using lump charcoal, and 100% of the funds go to support local Scouting activities in Holmes County. Our volunteers start the grills at 6 a.m. so we can have hot chicken ready for pickup. It takes the efforts of local Scouts and volunteers to make this happen.”

The public is invited to stop by either Tope Printing or Crissey Memorial Pool in the parking lot on Saturday, June 18 starting at 10:30 a.m., where the Scouts will sell barbecued chicken halves until they are sold out.

Activities sponsored by the group include defrayment of annual Scout dues for units in Holmes County, camping opportunities and community-service programs.

“Our organization is made up of volunteers, and no salaries are paid,” said Scott Biltz, president. “The donations we collect are 100% used to support our mission.”

The group is asking for a minimum donation of $8 per chicken half. Both locations are in Millersburg. Crissey Pool is located ½ mile west of the square on state Route 39. Tope Printing is 1 mile south of the square on state Route 83.

“Both locations are drive-thru, so it is very convenient to drive up and get your chicken without getting out of the car,” Biltz said. “The group will have canopies, so come out rain or shine.”
