Dear Celebrators,

My name is Thomas Calabrese and I am the Senior Patrol Leader of Boy Scout Troop 125 here in Celebration.  I am joined by my Assistant Senior Patrol Leader Brandon Cunningham.

Every year Troop 125 hosts a Spaghetti Dinner as a fundraiser.  The funds that we raise are used to offset the costs of our camping trips and service projects that we do in the community.

Normally we are able to come to the Celebrators monthly meeting in person, however this year due to a scheduling conflict we were not able to come in person for the January meeting.

This year our Spaghetti dinner will be held on February 3rd at 6:00 pm at the Celebration K8 School cafeteria.  Food will be provided by the Olive Garden and the Scouts will be serving our guests.

Tickets for the dinner are $15 per person.   If you can email me at and provide your phone number either myself or Brandon will contact you to arrange a time to come by and deliver your tickets.

If you are not able to attend the dinner but would like to make a donation to the troop we would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for your support of Scouting.

 Meeting People In The Celebrators

Celebrators –  Ever want to meet other people from our wonderful group but missed, due to various reasons, the monthly meeting or do not care to attend the various luncheons or dinners that are offered ?  If you do attend these gatherings,  you tend to socialize only with those to the left or right of you due to seating arrangements. 

We want to offer an alternative solution to meeting other Celebrators with common interests such as:  college alumni, progressive lunch or dinner club, former careers, classic cars, where you lived prior to moving to Celebration, etc. 

We’ll discuss this opportunity at our next monthly meeting.   If you are unable to attend, contact me, Nick Koulichkov, click on e-mail for more details.  Please insert “Celebrators” in the subject line.
