Thanksgiving to Remember at 4N Ranch

November 11, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm

After the Campfire at Bear Creek, Lawson came up and stated “Mr. Mac…..I know that Tristan really likes “Grandma’s Feather Bed”….but MY FAVORITE is “Jambalaya”. But, he said, “I’ve always wondered what is Jambalaya ???”

Fast Forward to the Committee Meeting…..where someone asked what will we dine upon at our Thanksgiving to Remember ?

Well, problem solved !!!

The feasting this November will feature Cajun Cuisine. So, the patrols need to coordinate as they will provide Boudin, Grits & Grillades, Gumbo, Jambalaya, and Hush Puppies.

The troop will provide bacon wrapped shrimp and salmon fillets in lemon sauce.


This event is for all Troop 285 supporters to celebrate our shared experiences in Scoutng. There will be a Thanksgiving feast, with catered salmon, shrimp and Cajun pot luck sides. (Cost per person $5.00)

What to expect:
This will be an 100% outdoor event. Water, tea and lemonade will be provided, so bring your favorite tumbler.
Dinner will be at approximately 3:00 pm to ensure we can hike to the overlook by 5:15 for sunset.
