The Spring Spaghetti harvest is in.
The Second Community Spaghetti Dinner happened in town earlier this week.
I wrote about the First Community Spaghetti Dinner here. This time I remembered my camera.
This plateful cost $1.00. Yes, that's right, a whole $1.00!
Spaghetti with meat sauce, calabrese bread and fresh spinach salad. And there was plenty for everyone. Long tables were set up in the Lions Club Hall, and neighbours ate with neighbours, making new friends in the community along the way. Toys were provided for the children to keep them busy while people got to know each other.
YoungerSon, The Bride and Isaac enjoyed the spaghetti too, with some friends joining us around the table. And when the spaghetti was all eaten up, there was a choice of tea or coffee and a selection of cookies and cupcakes for those who still had an extra corner to fill.
Isaac had enough room for a giant chocolate cookie.
Proceeds go to the local Food Bank. But it isn't just the Food Bank that benefits from this kind of event. Bringing the community together and making new friends is a great idea. Hats off to the organisers of this event.... may there be many more!
