Palisades District

Palisades District

About the District

The Palisades District serves Boyle, Fayette, Garrard, Jessamine, Madison and Mercer County. Covering "the heart of the bluegrass," Palisades has the largest number of units in the Blue Grass Council.

District Meetings

The entire district committee, chaired by the district chair, meets on a regularly scheduled date—usually monthly. The purpose of district meetings is to build momentum, provide group continuity, ensure good coordination, and make specific assignments to committee members. The district commissioner reports on the special needs of units and requests the help of operating committees to meet those needs.

Commissioners are district leaders who coach and consult with adult Scouters in Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, and Venturing crews. Commissioners help units succeed and deliver an outstanding Scouting program that meets the standards of the Boy Scouts of America.

District Committee meetings happen at 6pm on the second Thursday of the month in the Fellowship Hall of Immanuel Baptist Church, located on Tates Creek Road in Lexington, KY. District Commissioner meetings likewise happen on the same day at the same place.

We are always happy to see new faces! Feel free to come join us!

District Roundtables

Roundtables are monthly events for volunteers at the unit level. They are a time of fellowship and training, focused on providing Scouters with program ideas, information on policy and events, and special training opportunities. Roundtables also serve as a forum for sharing experiences and enjoying fun and fellowship with other adult Scouters. When skillfully executed, the Roundtable experience will inspire, motivate, and enable unit leaders to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.

District Roundtables are held monthly on the second Thursday of the month, immediately following the District Committee meeting. They are held in the Fellowship Hall of Immanuel Baptist Church, located on Tates Creek Road in Lexington, KY.
