The 46th Annual Boy Scouts of America Spaghetti Supper
 
Can a plate of spaghetti make this world a better place?  In Pine Mountain, Georgia, we believe it can and will on February 23. BSA Troop #40 has been training leaders by teaching young men the timeless values of integrity, loyalty, citizenship and accountability for over 70 years. For nearly 50 years, BSA Troop #40 has held a spaghetti supper as the troop’s main fundraiser to help fund their program.  The proceeds from this year’s 46th Annual Supper will allow Scouts to attend summer camp, take canoe and camping trips, rock climbing trips, and countless other excursions. 

BSA Troop #40 is a boy-led leadership model, and the Scouts learn leadership by doing, at times successfully, and other times as lessons learned. 

Join with your friends at this social event of the winter season, and make an investment in the future by coming out and supporting this worthwhile cause. 

The 46th Annual Boy Scouts of America Spaghetti Supper will be held at the Pine Mountain Public Safety Building located at 301 Chipley Street in Pine Mountain from 5-8 PM.

Tickets are $5.00 and take-outs are available.
