Each year Troop 97 holds one major fund-raiser—our pasta supper. 2014 is the 35th year for the supper, and the 17th year for the auction. So come have a good meal, fellowship, an opportunity to get good deals on numerous live and silent auction items, and generally to support the character, citizenship, and fitness goals of Scouting in Troop 97.
The supper helps reduce the costs of Scouting for all our Scouts, especially the important week at a BSA summer camp. The supper pays for camp in full for our new Scouts, and reduces the cost significantly for the others. The supper also provides financial assistance for those who cannot afford uniforms or activities.
Troop 97 began in 1952, failed in 1956, restarted in 1959, and has been in continuous existence for the 55 years since. During that time, over 900 boys have been Scouts in Troop 97, and 167 of them have earned Eagle Scout.
Tickets are $6.00; children 5 and under free. Cheesecake dessert is also available for $3. You can buy tickets at the door, or email the Scoutmaster to purchase tickets in advance.
