Troop 9 Serves More than Dinner

Boy Scout Troop 9 is excited about our biggest fundraiser of the year, the annual Chicken Dinner.  Scouts and their families in the troop will be preparing and serving over 1200 dinners.  This year the dinner will be served on Sunday, May 5 starting at 10:00 AM and continue until after the 11:00 worship services at both the Downtown and Trinity campuses.

This will be the twenty-sixth year in a row Troop 9 has prepared and served the dinners.  But what makes this dinner even more special is that it is a service project as well.  Approximately 400 dinners are given to those in need through Project Host, Triune Mercy Center, Tabernacle Children’s Home, Safe Harbor, and the Juvenile Detention Center.

The dinners consist of a marinated chicken breast, baked beans, corn on the cob, Sonrise bakery roll, and a cookie.  Tickets can be purchased beginning first Sunday in April in the church lobbies, and also during Wednesday night suppers.  Tickets are $10 with a limited number of tickets available on chicken dinner day.

Please plan to enjoy a dinner and support our scouting program here at Buncombe Street.  Thank you for your prayers and support as Troop 9 continues to promote leadership and good citizenship through service in our community.
