Scouts BSA Troop 15 Serves up Famous Annual Spaghetti Dinner at West Redding Firehouse on Saturday May 4, 2019 from 4:45 – 8:00pm
Enjoy the best deal in town… Spaghetti, salad, rolls, beverages and home made deserts served along with great company and conversation at West Redding’s Fire Truck Trattoria.  This decades long tradition constitutes the one and only annual fundraising event for Troop 15.

Every year, Troop 15 seeks support in achieving their mission to serve the community, learn life skills and embrace rewarding adventures.

The Troop 15 legacy of community service and Eagle Scout projects can be witnessed throughout town.  Recent highlights include obtaining driveway measurements for Redding Fire Department safety management, graveling the Redding garden path and adding park benches along the way, entrance landscaping at Topstone Park and platform construction at New Pond Farm.  Scouts manage registration tables and hand out water during the Turkey Trot, lend helping hands at the Annual West Redding Fire Department Steak and Chicken Dinner and, for more than a decade, have replaced grave flags to honor local veterans on Memorial Day weekend.  In fact, town officials estimate that over the years, the Troop has provided more than $300,000 of value to the Town of Redding.

Redding’s robust program and roster of outings and adventures attract Scouts from nearby and outlying towns.  The Troop boasts over one hundred Scouts earning the BSA’s highest achievement, Eagle Scout, with an Eagle conversion rate typically doubling that of the national average.

Troop 15 is ready to serve you and invites you to purchase your tickets today.
