A Fundraising Tradition at Covered Bridge


It’s no surprise that there are tons of food vendors at Bridgeton for the Covered Bridge Festival.

And one vendor has been in the same spot for years, with the same end goal in mind.

The Boy Scouts of America Troop 311 has been raising funds by serving hungry folks at the festival every Fall.

Their menu includes all kinds of breakfast food, classic ham and beans, as well as BBQ pulled pork.

The meal does cost, and extra donations are always welcome.

Fundraising activities like this allow for the Scouts to pay for Summer Camps, field trips, and other excursions.

“It’s going for a good cause. You know the Scout’s teaches boys life skills, teaches them how to be good citizens. And the money that we’re raising during the festival will help them in their year,” said Scout parent Matt Eisman.
