      BOY SCOUTS & CUB SCOUTS OF AMERICA TROOP/PACK 17
      SPONSOR ANNUAL BBQ FUND-RAISER

      Asheville, NC - The fifth annual Cub Scout Pack 17 and Boy Scout Troop 17 barbeque dinner benefit will occur on Saturday, October 3, 2020. This year’s BBQ event will be to-go only due to Covid-19. BBQ will be served at the Riceville Fire Department and Community Center, 2251 Riceville Road, Asheville, NC from noon to 6:00pm. The charge for a to-go dinner will be $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for children 12 and under. Reservations are not required.

      After four years of offering dine in or take out BBQ dinners the decision was made to offer to-go only BBQ and follow responsible Covid-19 guidelines for the preparation and serving of BBQ.

      Scoutmasters will serve as BBQ pit masters as they work through the night to smoke North Carolina raised Smithfield pork shoulders for 12 hours. To-go dinners are $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for children under 12 and include a generous portion of BBQ pork, homemade BBQ sauce, baked beans, BBQ slaw, rolls, dessert and bottled water.

      The Scouts are also offering a large whole BBQ pork shoulder (average weight 12 pounds) with a pint of BBQ sauce for only $40.00. Supplies are limited so place your order for the pork shoulder on or before September 27, 2020 by calling (828) 298-1452 or email janehlittle@gmail.com.

      “Local Packs and Troops raise funds to provide support for Scouts in their service area,” said Committee Chairman Dan Little. “Funds are used to provide assistance for Scouts from economically challenged communities by sending scouts to summer camp, provide scouting handbooks, uniforms, “Boys Life Magazine” and payment for the national Boy Scouts Of America annual recharter fee. Raised funds are also used to purchase flags for our veterans’ graves.”

      On Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day Cub Scout and Boy Scout Troop 17 honor our deceased veterans at Bethel United Methodist Cemetery by placing flags on their graves.

      Boy Scouts Serving Others: Since 1910, over 4,000 young men in Western North Carolina have earned the coveted rank of Eagle Scout. Through their Eagle Scout service projects, thousands of community service hours have been conducted to benefit our communities. Scouts in Western North Carolina will perform over 40,000 hours of community service in 2020.
