Boy Scout Troop 840 will host its 28th annual "All You Can Stand" Chili Supper on Saturday, December 3rd, 2022 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Valley Ranch Elementary, located at 9800 Rodeo dr. Irving TX.
Tickets are $10 for the all-you-can-eat dinner, which includes beef or vegetarian chili, hot dogs, baked potatoes, and all the fixings. Additionally, chili may be purchased by the quart for $13.
To purchase tickets or quarts.
Tickets may be purchased at the door; however, advance purchase of tickets will ensure that the Troop will
have enough chili and will also help scouts reach their chili-selling goal. Advance purchase for quarts is also encouraged and will be available for pick up on December 3rd at the supper.
Proceeds from the chili supper will be used to purchase camping gear; including tents, chairs, knives, hydration packs, sleeping bags, lanterns, and more, for the annual Scout Buck Auction held in May.
Scouts must sell a pre-determined minimum amount of chili tickets to be eligible to participate in the auction, using "scout bucks" that they have earned throughout the year by attending meetings and campouts,
advancing in rank, earning merit badges, holding leadership positions, participating in the knotmaster program, and other activities.
We are using our original recipe that we have used for years to cook chili since the event began 28 years ago as a way to fund the auction.
Chili is slowly cooked with aromatic spices, Vegetables and beef using utmost care, cleanliness and safety precaution also beef and Vegetarian chili is cooked separately to avoid cross contamination.
So there is Chili for everyone !!
While the adults take care of the cooking, the Scouts take care of setting up, serving, and the clean up afterwards.
It's our Troop Tradition and the Scouts are happy to share it with our community.
Local Law Enforcement and Fire figthers usually join us for this event and we could not be more proud and excited to host the Supper
Troop 840, which is led by Scoutmaster Frank Miller and Senior Patrol Leader Harrison Greenberg, meets weekly at Church of the Apostle.
