Early yesterday afternoon (starting at 12:30) Jason's Restaurant hosted a spaghetti dinner to benefit the Ocracoke Boy Scout troop. Jason's is normally closed on Sundays, but they opened their kitchen to the Boy Scouts who helped prepare, box, and sell the dinners. For $8.00 you could get spaghetti with marinara; for $10.00, spaghetti with meat balls. Garlic bread and a soft drink was included.
On a cold winter day the dinner was an opportunity to get out of the house, chat with friends and neighbors, and enjoy a delicious meal without the work of preparation and clean up. And, of course, it was all for a good cause.
Congratulations to the Boy Scouts for a successful fundraiser!
