Troop 1010 creates night to remember with Valentine's dinner

Last night I took my wife, daughter Amber, and our good friend Clarissa Erikson out for a Valentine's Day dinner provided by Boy Scout Troop 1010 under the direction of Time Greetens and Jason Norman.
On the menu was a choice of either Lasagna or Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, tossed salad, garlic bread, and dessert of either red velvet cake or cheesecake.
The event showcased the "Holy Grounds Cafe," a newly remodeled room, which was an eagle project, for one of the scouts from 1010.
Being on the third session for dining, I did expect to see a lack of performance and quality of food since the last shift was eating at 7pm.
This was definitely not the case in fact, when we arrived at St. Joes' school, we were met by the mat re d who instantly knew us by name although I cannot remember meeting the Scout before.
We checked our coats, and were seated immediately in the "cafe" and the atmosphere was well above my expectations.
Soft Jazz music in the background. The bar or counter area was rebuilt from old chalkboards and refinished.
Savvy's Restaurant donated the Lasagna and helped the scouts prepare the rest of the meal with the aid of the troop leaders.
The event was to raise awareness that there was a troop that was alive and well with the St. Joe's parishioners and the event seems to have snowballed into a bigger event than anticipated by the troop.
If the event is offered next year, make plans to attend.
The meal was exceptional, service was superb, and the 10.00 meal was well worth it.
Thanks Troop 1010, now I dont' have to go find a Valentine's gift for my wife.
