Troop 148 plans Ital­ian Night fundraiser

Record Observer - - News -

QUEEN­STOWN — A bunch of boys get­ting to­gether on a Satur­day evening in Queen­stown may not seem note-wor­thy at first. But these boys are dif­fer­ent.

This com­ing Satur­day, March 18, a dozen boys, ages 11 to 16, from Boy Scout Troop 148 don white tow­els and their Class A “silks” to serve din­ner pro­vided by Ber­tucci’s of An­napo­lis. That’s right: Ber­tucci’s on a Satur­day night with­out cross­ing the bridge.

It’s not your av­er­age spaghetti din­ner, ei­ther. For al­most a decade, Ber­tucci’s of An­napo­lis has part­nered with BSA Troop 148 to cater its an­nual fundraiser.

But Troop 148 serves more than just pasta. With such part­ners as lo­cal thrift shops, food drives, Ch­e­sa­peake Bay En­vi­ron­men­tal Cen­ter, Op­er­a­tion Christ­mas Child and As­sateague Na­tional Seashore, they vol­un­teer to make the com­mu­nity stronger and learn lead­er­ship skills as they do. The troop camps six times a year and ex­pects a ma­jor­ity of its scouts to earn their Ea­gle Badges within the next year. Troop 148 was es­tab­lished in Queen­stown 52 years ago.

So, if you’re won­der­ing what to do the evening after St. Pa­trick’s Day, go Ital­ian — be their guest. Carry-out and gluten free pasta avail­able. The din­ner will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Satur­day at Cal­vary United Methodist Church, 7113 Mary­land Ave., Queen­stown.

Din­ners are $10 for ages 12 and up, $5 for ages 11 and un­der. Tod­dlers eat for free with adult.
