The BCO would like to thank everyone who came out yesterday for the Spaghetti Dinner, the 31th annual Bennett Community Dinner. It was a HUGE success, and the only green and compostable event at Bennett! We hope you all had as much fun as we did. A special thanks goes out to everyone who volunteered taking tickets, prepping & serving food or cleaning up. You are all amazing! We’d also like to thank the Bennett Cub Scout Pack 91 who were instrumental in many ways and created a wonderful presence in their awesome uniforms. Great job Scouts!!!
