Troop 29 hosts annual corned beef fundraiser


BSA Troop 29’s Committee began their preparations at the top of the morning on March 7th.  Corned beef and the accompanying sides of potato and cabbage were prepared for the extensive support Troop 29 receives for this annual fundraiser.  Members of the Troop’s Committee organized the day’s activities with experience, skill, and finesse. Family members and friends of Troop 29 came to the East Moriches Fire House for their beloved traditional meal. The Scouts of Troop 29 greeted, served and made sure their supporters enjoyed the event. The East Moriches Fire Department, the continuous sponsor of Troop 29 since 1915, provided the facilities, which enabled the Committee to hold this highly, attended event. The volunteers, Scouts, families, friends, supporters, and the community members enjoyed a wonderful meal inside the communal hall of the East Moriches Fire Department. Aida Dankowski, with the assistance of Chairperson Grace Minelli and the other committee members, organized the event as a new team for this year’s fundraiser. Their experience and organizational skill, combined with their commitment to the success of Troop 29, were evident throughout the day with the smooth service of over 500 Corned Beef or Hot Dog dinners. With a little luck of the Irish, the event was a great success.  Membership in Troop 29 represents multiple communities from East Moriches to Center Moriches, Shirley, Mastic and Westhampton.  The support shown by the community members from all these towns for Troop 29’s largest yearly fundraiser is greatly appreciated.
