A spaghetti dinner hosted by The Eagle Makers, Macedon Boy Scout Troop No. 167 chartered to the Free and Accepted Masons Drumlin Square Lodge No. 1180 will be held from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Macedon Center United Methodist Church at 1160 Macedon Center Road.  

Menu will include spaghetti with meat sauce, salad, garlic bread, homemade desserts and beverages. Take-outs available.

Pre-sale ticket prices are $7 for adults; $6 Senior Citizens; $4 children 5 to 11; free under 5. At the door, prices increase 50 cents. Tickets are available from troop members or by calling Troop Committee Chairman Pat LaMarche at 986-3887.

By hosting the spaghetti Dinner, the troop can increase the community’s awareness of Boy Scouting, while earning funds to operate the troop, which offers scholarships to graduating senior boys who have attained the rank of Eagle with the troop.  

Their scholarship fund, the Avery Kelsey Memorial Scholarship, is named in honor of a man who gave generously of his time and talents to further the aims of Boy Scouting. The troop is accepting donations to the scholarship fund through the charter organization or by contacting Troop Committee Treasurer Carol Hollenbeck at 986-1791. Scholarships will be handled through Dollars for Scholars.

In its 42nd year, the troop maintains a local presence, with the greatest number of Scouts from Gananda Central School District.  

Meetings are held at 7 p.m. Monday nights at the Macedon Center United Methodist Church. New Scouts are always welcome. Drop in at any meeting.  

Trained adults work with the troop. New Scoutmaster, Mike Sprague, took over Jan. 1, although he has been with the troop a number of years. Under his leadership, many adults work with the troop. Boys are assigned patrols. Each patrol has an assistant Scoutmaster working with it.

The troop stays active, attending many Scouting and non-Scouting events. In November, they gave service by participating in the National Good Turn Scouting for Food Campaign, collecting food for local food pantries. 

Boys and their parents put in many hours at the Christmas Tree Sale at McLouth’s during December. The troop is grateful for community support of the fundraiser. The troop went winter camping at Camp Cutler in Bristol.
 
They served at Cub Scout Pack No. 167’s Blue and Gold Banquet and have skied at Scout nights at Bristol Mountain.  

This summer, the troop will return to Camp Babcock-Hovey in Ovid and Camp Sebattis in the Adirondacks for a week to gain camping experience and earn more merit badges. 

The troop holds the ideals of Scouting, that the boys have a well-rounded program. The ultimate goal in Scouting is to earn the rank of Eagle, which only 3 to 4 percent of registered Scouts attain. Troop No. 167 boasts 42 Eagles.
