EDISON, NJ - The Edison Boy Scouts Troop 12 held its annual breakfast at the Elks Club on Old Post Road on Sunday, March 1.

For over twenty years, scouts and their parents have held the breakfast as a fundraiser to pay for camping fees and equipment such as tents, pots, lanterns, and other such items to be used during the year. Various merchants in Edison and Metuchen donate to help defray the costs of the breakfast. It is an all out community event.

The 38 scouts of Troop 12 were present to wait on and bus tables. They also served as greeters for guests coming in, and coat check boys. Parents and other volunteers prepared a variety of delicious foods, including scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, fresh fruit, coffee cake, and custom made omelettes. Over 350 guests were expected to enjoy the feast and meet the scouts of Troop 12.

“We have this breakfast every year“and we appreciate all the support we get," said Phil Toscano, Scout Master. "This is our only fundraiser of the year and by raising money for all of the equipment we need, the boys only have to pay their food costs when we go camping.”

Troop 12, which was founded in 1919 is looking forward to celebrating its 100th anniversary. Toscano mentioned that a committee is being formed to begin planning their centennial event. Troop 12 is looking forward to involving many of their former Eagle Scouts in planning the centennial.

Scout Master John Penevolee and Assistant Scout Master Phil Toscano are grateful for the community effort in the annual event.
