A recent spaghetti dinner hosted by Boy Scout Troop 262 raised $1,000.

The group which is multi-level was formed in September and is hosted out of the Sheridan Veterans of Foreign Wars location on Route 20. “The boys got there at 10 a.m. and started prepping, they baked brownies on Saturday to prepare for Sunday and then they prepared the kitchen and worked in the kitchen,” Merit Badge Counselor Kathryn Moore stated of the event held earlier this month. “This was part of their cooking for their badges. We sold dinners from 2 to 6 p.m.”

Upon arriving the boys cut and bagged the brownies as well as recycled the jars and made the sauce before being surprisingly slammed a few hours later. “There was a drive-through window and we were slammed,” Moore added. “We started doing dinners at 2 p.m. and we were slammed until 4 p.m. We were amazed at how many people came.”

Altogether eight scouts and their families helped to make this endeavor a success.
