Troop 148 plans Italian Night fundraiser
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.
