I noticed over the weekend that Aaron Tippin was headed to our neck of the woods this week...literally.  Our friends at the Herald Whig and KHQA-TV reported that Aaron would be appearing at Heartland Lodge for the Oakley-Lindsey Clay Sporting Event benefiting the local Boy Scouts.

The Herald Whig quoted Aaron about why he got involved:  "It's very important to me that I support the Scouts. I grew up in the Scouts," Tippin said.

"It's very important to me that I support the Scouts. I grew up in the Scouts,"

I also grew up in the Boy Scouts (despite allegations that I was raised by a tribe of out-of-control orangutans).  I appreciate that a guy like Aaron would take the time to give back to the Boy Scouts...and it's no surprise that he's doing it in our area.    As I recall, Aaron performed at the Adams County Fair back in 2002 and has been in love with this part of the country for some time.

If you would like information on tickets to the event, you can contact the Boy Scout office at 217-224-0204.
